Look forward to a grand New Year’s Eve celebration in our beautiful Inner Harbour on December 31, 2016. This free event includes a spectacular three-dimensional digital light show and firework display, musical performances, food, and other fun activities. It all kicks off at 5:00pm, and ends at 9:30pm. Our fireworks will be timed with those in our nation’s capital of Ottawa. See our schedule for programming details.


The First Night celebration on Saturday, December 31, 2016, will have an exciting lineup of live music, fun activities, and a spectacular firework show.
