It’s the countdown of the year. We’re heading into 2022! Champagne. Glitter. The ball drop. The kiss. New you. New me. Whatever the new year means to you, find your perfect spot to celebrate in Overland Park. From Noon Year’s Eve to the real New Year’s Eve, Overland Park knows how to welcome in 2022.


New Year’s Eve at Pinstripes

If you’re looking for a feast, live music, and passing the time until midnight with a little bowling and bocce, ring in 2022 at Pinstripes! There is no cover charge but you will need to make a reservation. Gather in the foyer at midnight adorned with complimentary party favors, champagne, and yell "Happy New Year!" Live music by local artist, Laura Fotovich, will keep the party going all night long! 

If midnight is not your (or your kids) style, Pinstripes will be doing a ball drop at 8 PM (with complimentary non-alcoholic sparking juice for the kids).


Noon Year’s Eve Kids Disco at Pinstripes
