NOTE: this post contains OUTDATED information. For info on New Years Eve 2015/2016, please see our Events Calendar.

Another year is coming to a close, and we want you to celebrate downtown! This year, December 31st falls on a Wednesday. Many events require tickets or a reservation, so make your plans early to avoid disappointment!

This year is special because Calgary Transit is offering 15 minute C-Train service until 3am to help you get home safely!


Looking for a family friendly atmosphere? Join the City of Calgary downtown for free, family friendly activities.

The City of Calgary Family Dance Party kicks off at 7pm and features some fun for families with little ones who might not make it to midnight. The event features dancing, activities and a countdown at 9pm!

The City of Calgary Outdoor Celebration picks up at 9pm and goes on until midnight. Bring your skates to enjoy the ice at Olympic Plaza, as well as live music, ice sculptures and a countdown to midnight.

Want to stay out of the cold? December 31st at 1pm is the last showing of Alberta Theatre Projects’ family show Charlotte’s Web.
