2019 New Years Eve Events in Ottawa

**This is the 2018-2019 NYE Party List**

For 2019-2020, Click here!!!


Here we are into December, and I’ve been working diligently on my New Years Eve post. I’ve been asked by a couple people when it will be posted, so I guess people actually want to see it!! ? This list is my starting point and it’s broken down by area of the city. I’ll be adding to it as I find more events, but I’d say this is a good start!

If you’re not in Ottawa this New Year’s Eve and are traveling through Canada, check out a blog post by Canadian Affair about what’s going on across the country. You can see the post by clicking here!

If you are running an event and it isn’t on this list, and you think it should be, please feel free to send me the details via my website/contact info.

Happy New Years everyone!!!

    1. Hello Jean, yes they are! I just discovered it. It’s a Ska and Reggae event featuring Scott Allen formerly from Rudeboy. It starts at 10pm, but I don’t have information on cover/tickets. I hope that helps.

    1. Hi Zita, of course you like to dance and enjoy your lives, I hope to be the same way some day!! 🙂 I haven’t found any specific events that are dedicated specifically for seniors, but there are plenty of options around. The Gladstone Theatre, or Rideau Carleton Raceway both have events you may be interested in? Sorry that’s not much help. If you see something you’d like to pass along, I’d be happy to include it on my list. Thanks!!

    1. Hi Maddy….that’s the million dollar question on most days. It depends on when you go, but I can suggest trying the world exchange plaza. It’s close to the hill and often is free, but it depends on the day/time that you go. There are plenty of little parking lots around. The north side of Gloucester Street between Metcalfe and O’Connor has a great lot for only $3 if you park on weekdays after 4:00pm. Other than that, you can always circle for street parking, but give yourself time. Cheers!!

    1. Hello Violet, I don’t believe there are any this year. I’ve seen nothing from my usual sources of there being any fireworks. That doesn’t mean that there won’t be, but I haven’t seen anything.

    1. Hello Diana, I’m sorry but I don’t know of anything off hand. Teens are a demographic that I don’t market too very often. Usually it’s just small kid, or of-age adults that I focus my events towards. I had a quick look through my post, and I don’t really see anything. I think you’d almost have to look at the community level for some smaller-scale local events. Sorry.
