Last year I compiled a list of New Year’s Eve events in Edmonton for both my own decision-making and to help others plan out how they’d ring in the new year. I always have trouble finding good events and all-encompassing lists – so when in doubt… just make one yourself! ;) This list will be updated as I find new events and as event information becomes available. I imagine more events will be announced closer to New Years Eve so keep checking back for updates! I hope it acts as a valuable resource for you as much as it will for me!!

If you know of a New Years Eve event in Edmonton & area, please let me know! Comment below or tweet me and I’ll add it to this list!

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

  1. Thanks for the tip Ron! It looks like their events page has some conflicting info (part of the description is referring to 2012/last year’s New Years) so I’ll wait until they update it all before I add it to the post!

  2. Hi Linda! Thanks for this list – I’d like to add a truly FABULOUS event:

    New Year’s Eve gala and belly dance spectacular with Club Cairo: Once upon a time, a whole bunch of insanely talented belly dancers joined with a fiery musician. They work collectively under the title Club Cairo, and have been putting on semi-annual shows that sell out.

    This New Years Eve, they reunite to bring you an exciting evening of absolute beauty and entertainment. A $100 investment offers you a full multi-course meal, wonderful live entertainment, a midnight celebration, and a roaring dance floor. We hope you’ll join us!

    Live music by Sam Tabet

    Dance performances by Anya, Hala Jamal, Holly, Lauren, Mimi Ghazal, Saskia, and Tatiana. With special guest MC, Denise Leclair.

  3. I’m wondering if there are any Vancouver-style new year’s events, perhaps at a casino or hotel, complete with great buffet. Or just a regular buffet dinner that I could start at about 9pm, and leave an hour or two later, in time for fireworks downtown. Typing this out however, I’m realizing that’s a tall order…

  4. There are a few parties taking place at hotels but I don’t know if the dinner menu is buffet. Fort Edmonton Park, The Comic Strip, and the Northlands Mardi Gras also offer buffets! :)
