Located near Yosemite in Coarsegold, Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino is a desirable destination for Bay Area residents. The casino is holding a New Year’s Eve celebration featuring the band Hindsite, acrobatic air events, free party favors and more.
“People should be excited about coming out to celebrate with us because our facility has a lot of great amenities to offer as well as a great New Year’s celebration that has no charge for the public,” Chukchansi spokesman Chanel Wright said.
The band Hindsite will perform from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., and free party favors will be given out on the casino floor starting at 9 p.m. The Champagne Creative Group — an association of entertainers — will roam the floor in various costumes while posing for photos with casino guests.
Hotel rooms at Chukchansi for the New Year’s weekend are still available; the going rate is $299 per night with a two-night minimum stay.
“Typically on the weekends, we always have promotions throughout the weekend,” Wright said. “However, our room prices can go from $99 to free rooms for members of the club. Throughout the week we definitely have more-affordable, more-reasonable rates on those rooms. We have over 400 rooms and offer government rates.”
To cap the New Year’s Eve celebration off, guests can pick up free cider at 11:30 p.m. A countdown ball drop on plasma screens will be displayed throughout the casino floor five minutes before the countdown begins. Gold and black decorations will be spread throughout the casino.
The casino is also offering a Winter Winning Giveaway in which it is giving away two Mercedes-Benzes on Saturday and Sunday. To enter the contest, guests must be a part of Chukchansi’s Player’s Club; for every 10 points earned, members will receive an entry to the giveaway.
