New Year’s Eve in the City

Community Event Concert or Performance Festivals and Celebrations

31 Dec 2018 to 1 Jan 2019

Bid goodbye to the year that was and shout hello to 2018 at New Year’s Eve in the City!

Welcome the new year in Civic Square with Art vs. Science headlining a free, all-ages concert, while feasting on the city’s best food trucks with a front-row seat to the spectacular 9pm and midnight firework displays, launched from City Hill.

Joining Art vs. Science in Civic Square will be local band Brass Knuckle Brass Band and Canberra-born Harry Carman, who has been compared to the likes of Jack Johnson and Ed Sheeran.

With a full line-up of family entertainment to keep everyone occupied, families can feast on the very best local food trucks, including Indian street food Tikka Stand, Canberra favourite Jacko’s Pizza, Potato Swirls, Pure Gelato and Shotclock Espresso.

Just over the road, Garema Place will be home to Bass in the Place, an all-ages and free high-energy dance party with an expertly-curated line up. Featuring one of Australia’s top DJs, Ember (of Ministry of Sound fame) will bring the beats and turn heads with his dance-inducing sets, along with Canberra’s very own Blanke, Clique and Peter Kiemann.
