Join us at Foun­tain Square in down­town Som­er­set as we ring in the new year at our Light Up 2023 Bash! We’ll count­down to 2023 with a prop drop, food truck ven­dors, bev­er­ages and plen­ty of incred­i­ble music.

The Som­er­set Big Band will open the event at 6pm, fol­lowed by duo Hei­di & Ryan per­form­ing some of our favorite coun­try cov­ers. At 10pm, Next Lev­el Band will take the stage to get us on our feet and danc­ing the night away!

Make sure to bring chairs and blan­kets for a com­fort­able evening. Entry is free! For those who want to pur­chase alco­hol, spir­it bands will be avail­able for $5 at the gate.
