The Fillmore’s Resolution Ball welcomes 2019 with a full-blown circus



Get ready to throw inhibitions to the wind because 2019 is coming in like a wrecking (Resolution) ball. Returning to the newly restored Fillmore theatre, the Resolution Ball promises a Vegas-style spectacle complete with a full-blown circus. In addition to the NYE mainstays (televised ball drop from Times Square, Champagne toast, midnight snacks, etc.), expect dazzling entertainment from stilt-walkers, fire dancers, illusionists, and a heavy rotation of live bands and roaring DJs. Oh, and there will also be something called a “confetti storm,” because who doesn’t love millions of tiny pieces of paper?

Event begins at 8 p.m.; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451;; Tickets are $120+.
