If you live in the scenic Temecula Valley region, you may be looking for the perfect spot to ring in the New Year. Since you may be new to the area, we’ve curated a list of some of the most festive free and ticketed adult and family-themes activities to start your countdown to 2020.

Winery Events. Because Temecula Valley is renowned for its award-winning wines, there are lots of cork-popping NYE parties and places for elegant dining at leading wineries in the area. From a roaring twenties ballroom bash at South Coast Winery Resort & Spa to a more serene dinner in the barrel room at Ponte Winery, wine lovers will have lots of toasting options.

The Grape Drop. Apple? What apple? From 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. families are invited to watch the Temecula grape drop twice (East Coast and West Coast midnight) at Town Square Park on Main Street in Temecula. This free event offers fun for everyone including a fun zone, food vendors, live music and kids’ activities.

Casino Style. Pechanga Resort Casino is featuring a variety of events for every musical taste from dueling pianos to jazz to country. And if you party too hearty, you can always spend the night!

Mission Inn Festival of Lights. If you missed the spectacular light extravaganza at Mission Inn in Riverside before Christmas, the show is still going on until January 6. This elaborate display is not just the brightest event in the area with over five million lights, there are many festive free activities for kids and adults alike.

If purchasing a beautiful new Cornerstone Communities home was one of 2019’s crowning achievements, another way to celebrate the year’s passing is to spend it at home with friends and family enjoying a lovely night in admiring your new surroundings and toasting to all that is to come.
