This free event will include a live TV broadcast on Eastlink Community TV.  Our headliner is JJ WILDE who is also the first female Juno Winner of "Rock Album of the Year" since Alanis Morissette. Her live high energy rock shows are a Major hit across the Country and this is our first chance to see her downtown Halifax!

Returning live for the first time since 2019 will be the annual Atlantic Countdown and largest fireworks finale in the province at midnight. 

This year, the municipality has been selected as one of the key cities participating in CBC’s national New Year’s Eve broadcast. Residents are encouraged to come to Grand Parade between 9:30 to 10:15 p.m. for the chance to participate in the broadcast. We will film the National show first and we need everyone showcasing how Halifax has the biggest outdoor NYE celebration in the country!
