Ottawa is a great spot to meet the New Year due to the vast amount of activities that are available to the general public. Canadian capital offers plenty of activities for friends, families, and sorts of cheerful crowds.
Hogman-eh!, a Scottish-style Hogmanay celebration, is the place to ring in the New Year with friends and family. There is Kids Countdown at 7 pm for the youngest crowds. Midnight fireworks at TD Lansdowne Park will illuminate the skies and hearts. Scottish food and drinks, musical entertainment, and dancing—what could you add to make this night better? This party at Lansdowne’s Aberdeen Pavilion offers free admission until 9 pm and a $10 entry fee after.
Not a huge fan of booze? Then Rick Chiarelli’s Alcohol-Free New Year’s Eve is for you! The night kicks off outside at the rink at Ben Franklin Place with a skating show by the Nepean Skating Club. Bundle up to watch the talented performers. The night ends with fascinating fireworks.
Another option is Ottawa New Year's Eve Charity Ball with an exquisite 4-course meal, music, and dances at Ottawa Conference and Event Centre.
