Here are just some of the events and parties taking place on December 31, 2022 in and around Wilson County. Of course, the biggest event will be the huge outdoor countdown at Bicentennial Park in Nashville with concerts by some of the biggest names in country music. And it’s free. But there are a few activities closer to Lebanon and Mount Juliet, too.

Get out your silly hats, some sparklers and some champagne to toast the end of 2002 and the beginning of 2023. So, raise a cup to auld lang syne — the past that is but memories and the hopes of the future!

1UpD23 – New Year’s Bash

Nash Vertical Disc Dogs
5242 East Richmond Shop Road (business address)
Lebanon, Tennessee
Hours: 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Cost $5.00 to $12.00 per round

The New Year’s Bash for dog and Disney fans. This is the ultimate day of dog disc games at Cedars of Lebanon Park/Cedar Run. It will take place at 328 Cedar Forest Road in Lebanon. Ring in the New Year with UpD23. This event will be full of Disney fun, and of course, Disney music! There will be a cookout and games at Cedar Run. If you want to have a little extra fun, dress up in your favorite Disney hounds costume! They will be up to watch the Ball Drop at midnight for those who want to stick around for that on Saturday! People will likely be shooting fireworks around once it gets dark, so if that makes your dog(s) nervous, consider dropping them off at home or wherever you’re staying before coming back to eat, drink, and ring in the New Year.

For those that are new, UpDog is an extremely beginner friendly dog game community, and they will go over each game before it is played. Their number one goal is to make sure every dog is having fun! See sign-up form for more details.
