Learn English – n idiom or phrase set for completing a task, or completion of an event


I actually know quite a few idioms and other phrases for completion already as I am a native speaker. I am just wonder if there are any examples that relate to something that is formal such as an event. EXAMPLES: Round out, wrap up, finish out, finish up, sum up, end of the road, come to an end, tail end, end of the line, and let out.
