Where to ring in the New Year in Ottawa


Another year is over and the New Year is just beginning. Panoramic Properties wants to help you start off the New Year the right way. Here are some suggestions for where to ring in the New Year in Ottawa.

Parliament Hill

The nation’s capital throws a great big family-friendly New Year’s Eve bash on the grounds of iconic Parliament Hill (dress warmly). The event includes a stunning fireworks display at midnight as well as free live music and entertainment on Sparks Street and the surrounding area. It’s certainly one of the best parties in the city and something everyone in Ottawa should see.

New Year’s Eve in Zoe’s

If you’d prefer to get all dressed up, rather than all bundled up, on New Year’s Eve, get your tickets for New Year’s Eve in Zoe’s at the fabulous Fairmont Château Laurier (1 Rideau Street). Your ticket includes a glass of bubbly at midnight. Enjoy an evening of music, cocktails and celebration at one of the most beautiful hotels in the city.

New Year’s Eve Charity Ball

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to help others, the Ottawa New Year’s Eve Charity Ball is your opportunity to give back while you have a great time. This elegant evening includes an extravagant four-course meal, champagne, amazing auction items, world-class entertainment from the Steve Berndt Quartet and DJ David Deez. All proceeds benefit the Ottawa Rotary Home Foundation and Journey House. It all happens at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre (200 Coventry Road). Cocktails begin at 6 pm and dinner is at 7 pm.


Hogmanay is a family-friendly New Year’s Eve party in classic Scottish style! This free event brings the Edinburgh spirit to Ottawa’s Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne Park (1000 Exhibition Way). Ring in the New Year with traditional and contemporary Scottish music, dancing, drinks and food!
