Party like it's 2019

Sandpoint gets pumped for NYE

Surprising fact: Sandpoint is a super-hot destination for New Year's Eve. And that's because we've got some great venues that make for memorable celebrations. The Hive in downtown Sandpoint is a state-of-the-art concert house that hosts the annual New Year's Eve Bash - this year's event features Afrolicious. And then there's the all-ages lineup of parties at Schweitzer (ticket sales started Dec. 1, so hurry if you want to go). Finally, the 219 Lounge in downtown Sandpoint cranks it up with the Miah Kohal Band. Check 'em all out on the Visit Sandpoint Entertainment Calendar ... and happy 2019!
