Welcome to The Glitter City Gala. Your night to remember awaits!

The Glitter City Gala is the most visible, well-attended, and fun New Year's Eve event in Philadelphia. It has been a sold out event for the last SEVEN YEARS allowing over 1500 guests to "dress up, get down and ring in the New Year right" each year! The National Constitution Center provides the perfect backdrop for the night's festivities.

The space is beautiful, featuring specialty bars and gorgeous lighting. It also offers an outstanding view of the fireworks at midnight. General admission guests get two huge floors of action, **tons of bars & bartenders**, bountiful buffets, specialty martini bars, and much more. Upgrade to VIP status and get your own private VIP room, lounge seating, top shelf liquor & food, and a killer DJ.

If you are looking for a great New Years Eve party that is not too crowded, with no long lines, plenty easy-access bars, delicious food & carving stations, and a great crowd, look no further. Dance up a storm or relax a bit and people-watch. You and your friends are sure to be impressed and more importantly, have one awesome time ringing in 2010.

Dress to impress - think "Fancy, Funky, and a little Bit-O-Glitter". In other words... dress to impress! One thing is for sure... if you wait to buy tickets, you will not get them. Each year, we are SOLD OUT in advance of New Years Eve - do not wait, the price will go up. Read up on the event, email your family & friends, and get your tickets right here on this website. Quick, fast, and simple. We will mail your tickets out to you for fast entry in to the party.
