New Years Eve Party List For Ottawa!!

As per usual, I’ve put together a large list of Ottawa event options for an upcoming party night!! Celebrate this New Year’s Eve in style (or not in style if you so choose) with any of these fabulous events, listed below. After scouring the internet to find these events, I struggled with how to organize them, as people will typically go the extra mile, literally, to hit up the best New Year’s party available. I decided to sort them geographically for lack of better options. So please find below my non-exhaustive list of options to ring in the new year! I will update this list as I discover more events, but if you can’t find something amazing to do from this, a house party is likely your best option. If you are running an event and it isn’t on this list, please feel free to send me the details via my website/contact info.
