Idaho Potato Drop

Starting at 6:00 pm, the 9th annual Idaho Potato Drop on New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching and all are welcome to ring in the new year live at the Idaho State Capitol. The Potato Drop has become quite popular over the past years. Those who attend enjoy listening to music, watching sporting events, and live art performances, but that’s not all.

The Potato Drop supports local businesses all around Idaho. Mobile food vendors serve delicious local foods and beverages throughout the park as well and there is even the option to become a VIP “Very Important Potato”. By gaining access to the VIP Room, guests are provided cocktails, Hors d’oeuvre’s, live entertainment, and a chance to win gift baskets through a raffle.
