The Opening Night Party is a spectacular celebration of all things Barrett-Jackson. It serves as the event to ignite all the excitement that follows during the auction days. This year, the party will occur on October 19, 2022, the evening before the first day of the 2022 Houston Auction.

Begin your Barrett-Jackson Houston experience at the Opening Night Party at NRG Center, the world-class venue that will hold all the auction excitement. The arena will be transformed into a glamorous setting where party-goers can dine, dance and mingle with fellow friends of The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions and many others who share a passion for collector vehicles.

Nothing says a party like live music, especially from the acclaimed Emerald City Band. They have performed for President and Mrs. Bush at the White House twice and have shared the stage with artists including Martina McBride, Michael McDonald, Huey Lewis and the News, Justin Timberlake, Garth Brooks and Mariah Carey. This is the Texas-based group rocked the Barrett-Jackson stage for both the inaugural 2021 Houston Opening Night Party and 2022 Scottsdale Opening Night Gala, and will be returning to perform at the 2022 Opening Night Party in Houston. Emerald City always brings incredible energy to a party with a song list covering everything from Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks to Cindy Lauper and Def Leppard to Aretha Franklin and the Jackson 5.
