New Years Eve 2020….a Complete Party List For Ottawa!

Here we go again with another New Years Eve party list!! The pressure is on to find the most fun thing to do to kick off 2020. I’ve put together a collection of all the best parties throughout Ottawa for you to get a sense of what there is to offer for all tastes! I will continuously update this list as I find (or am told about) new events, so keep it bookmarked!! I’ve tried to organize this by area of the city so hopefully that is a bit helpful? These details are only partial, you’ll have to click into the events to get full details.

I personally will be attending the Ottawa New Years Eve Charity Ball being held at the Ottawa Conference and Events Centre. This annual charity event looks incredible, and I’ve wanted to go for years!! There are still tickets left!
