Ring in the New Year with us.

Ask a bell tower in your neighborhood to join in the ringing or ring a handheld bell from your front porch. Bring your friends. Meet a neighbor! And take a moment to enjoy the rich, bellowing tolls that bring us all a little bit closer together. That’s the meaning behind our motto: civitas resonet. Let the community ring!

How can you hear the bells on New Year's Day?

Throw open a window to let the sound of thundering bells roll inside. Head outside for a leisurely walk around your neighborhood. Plan a cozy picnic (and pack a mug of cocoa!) underneath your nearest bell tower. There are so many ways to celebrate the year to come under a canopy of sound.

If you're unsure whether a bell tower in your community will be participating, call ahead! Ask them to ring in the New Year with the National Bell Festival.
