The Great Pine Cone Drop 2019
Join us in celebrating 20 years of the Great Pine Cone Drop!
Positioned three stories above the intersection of Leroux St. and Aspen Ave., the seven-foot-tall, metal ponderosa pinecone is the New Year’s Eve symbol of hope and new beginnings for the Northland. Throughout the holiday season, the festive ornament and decorated hotel will light up the cool mountain nights and serve as the centerpiece of the decorated historic district.
Join thousands of people ringing in the New Year at 10pm and midnight as the Great Pine Cone Drops from the HistoricView more

As has been the case for two decades, there will be two lowerings for the 2018 Great Pinecone Drop on Monday, December 31: one at 10 p.m., to accommodate families with young children and to coincide with East Coast celebrations; and one at midnight. Both events will include music and sing-alongs, an inspirational message from Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans and a massive countdown led by local DJ Mario as thousands fill the blocked-off streets to ring in the New Year. Fireworks set off by the City of Flagstaff will punctuate the moment as the mountain town ushers in 2019.
