NEW YEAR’S EVE 2024 in Ottawa!! What’s Happening??

Hello all!! It’s that time of year again! It’s time to plan out the most fun thing you can possibly do to ring in the new year! You can now wipe the slate clean and start fresh for 2024. I’ve put together a list of all the events that I can find around Ottawa so you can make your plans. As per previous years, I’ll keep this list live and add to it as I find more exciting events. It won’t include every party at every little watering hole around Ottawa, but I’ll do my best to get you the greatest events to choose from. New Year’s Eve is less than three weeks away, so get planning and get your tickets soon! If you know of a larger event that I’m missing on this list, just let me know and I’ll get it added. I hope you all have a happy and safe new years!

This post is put together geographically for the most part with the city broken down in South, Central, West and East zones. I made them up myself, so it’s not exactly official boundaries.
