USS Yorktown

Announcing: The 8th Annual

New Year’s Eve Party

We’re approaching our 8th Annual Yorktown Countdown New Year’s Eve Party aboard the historic USS Yorktown. Building the most unique party venue for New Year’s Eve in Charleston, SC is no small task. After 100 staff members work around the clock for a strenuous 4 days, the USS Yorktown transforms into one of the most unique party venues in the country.

Aboard the USS Yorktown

So, how do we prepare for this annual New Year’s Eve event on this massive, historic ship? We first have to move the warplanes on the flight deck to make room for 15,000 square feet of heated tent space, while staging, generators, restrooms, bars, and production are crane-lifted 100 feet in the air to build the Flight Deck performance area.

The inside airplane hangar provides an 800-foot long open corridor filled with multiple live acts, special performance areas, with food stations and several bars spread out, setting the tone for one truly memorable New Year’s Eve experience in Charleston, SC – the southeast’s top-ranked New Years destination city.

History of the USS Yorktown

The USS Yorktown is one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers built during WWII for the US Navy and was named after the Battle of Yorktown of the American Revolutionary War. She is 890 feet in length, weighs over 30,000 tons. Commissioned in 1943, she participated in several campaigns in the Pacific Theater of Operations, earning 11 battle stars and various awards, including the Presidential Unit Citation.

Later, she served as a recovery ship for the Apollo 8 space mission and was used in the movie Tora! Tora! Tora! which recreated the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In 1970 she was decommissioned and in 1975 became a museum ship at Patriots Point, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. She is now a National Historic Landmark.
