The 2024 New Year Gem Drop! 


Celebrate the start of 2024 with us at the first annual Kuna New Year Gem Drop! Idaho has been nicknamed “the Gem State” since its territorial days so we saw it fitting to build a giant gem in its honor. Join us on Main St. for an unforgettable evening as we close down the road to drop a sparkling gem from a crane at midnight to welcome in the New Year. 

There are several local businesses participating with food and drink specials. Purchase a drink from one of the participating bar establishments (See Participating Bars & Businesses Tab). If you would like to take your alcoholic beverage outside into the designated drink zone, you must be wearing a special wristband and have a designated cup. No outside alcohol is permitted. Must be 21 and older to enter bar establishments with valid photo ID. 

There will be security and road closures to ensure the safety of the public.

When the countdown to the new year begins, Seid Crane will drop the Gem resulting in a pyrotechnic display. The pyrotechnic fountains should last under 5 minutes. Please stay behind the safety fence-barricade. If you have sensitive pets, please make sure to take precautions for them as well.
