Rockin NYE started in 216 when Vin Dombroski, frontman of Sponge and a Detroit native that wandered into Wyandotte in Fall of 2016. 

He saw the potential of hosting a yearly New Year’s Eve event. He partnered with 360 Event Productions and together they approached the City of Wyandotte about hosting a large scale New Year’s Eve event on Biddle Ave. 

The City of Wyandotte, Mayor Joe Peterson and the Wyandotte DDA were in full support to bring this new and exciting event to Wyandotte. 

The first year over 10,000 people gathered in the streets to celebrate. Sponge actively performs around the US. While on the road, Vinnie reaches out to fellow rockers and invites them to perform at Rockin’ NYE. 

In 2018, Wally Palmer of The Romantics was a special guest. This year, Brett Scallions, frontman of Fuel is joining Sponge onstage to perform all the hits!

The event hours are 6p.m. – 1 a.m.
