Edmonton is an excellent place for traditional New Year's entertainment. Whether you are celebrating with children or with a noisy group of friends, everyone will find something to their liking.

The main downtown celebration takes place at the Alberta Legislature Grounds next to the Federal Plaza. Concerts, dancing, and fireworks by the Christmas tree promise a fun night. Food trucks with hot street food in the square and on the neighboring streets won't let anyone get hungry.

The most exquisite parties and receptions take place at once in many hotels across the city. The most famous of them—Edmonton International New Year’s Eve Gala—is held at the Fantasyland Hotel. We recommend reserving tickets for all events in advance, as it can be competitive.

Those willing to escape Edmonton and its NYE crows can find plenty of fun opportunities within a half-hour drive from the city. Nearby towns like Stony Plain and St. Albert run smaller-scale family festivals with winter entertainment: skating, snowshoeing, dance shows, and crafts.
