Have Fun & Potato On
Now in its seventh year, the Idaho® Potato Drop is the largest New Year’s Eve event in Idaho. It’s held on the grounds of the Idaho Statehouse. Each year, this FREE event has grown in scale, quality and reach, with media coverage throughout the state and around the world through live television, commercials, publications, news clips, articles and social media feeds.
This year’s event expands on the original vision to include multiple live music acts, street performers, family-friendly tent, VIP tent, food and drink vendors, a USASA-sanctioned Olympic pre-qualifier Toyota rail jam event and a newly-designed, high-tech, LED-lit Idaho® Potato Drop potato dropping at midnight, culminating with a-live-fireworks display.
Team Building & Family Friendly
Are you looking for a fun new way to bring in the new year? Maybe your new year’s resolution is to be more of a humanitarian? We would love you help to set up and tear down at the Idaho State Capitol. The Idaho® Potato Drop is a free, family-friendly, and charitable event. Come ring in the new year with the Potato Drop Crew. Volunteer
