5 Things to Do on New Year’s Eve in the GTA

New Year’s Eve is what you make it. Whether you’re on the hunt for a wild evening of dancing and singing along to your favourite local bands, or simply looking to view some classic fireworks… you’ve got options.

Let’s have a look at what’s happening this year around Toronto.

Catch a Concert

Spend NYE with some of Toronto’s premier artists. Dwayne Gretzky descend upon History for an evening of singing, dancing, and some of the greatest hits of all-time. Or catch friends of the station The Beaches and Jane’s Party performing in Brampton followed by fireworks, all hosted by Indie88’s Josie Dye!


Fireworks are a plenty this December 31, including a show set for Toronto’s waterfront with suggested viewing areas spread out across the Lakeshore.

For those taking the TTC, there will be free all-night service on New Year’s Eve.

Hit Up a Restaurant

There’s something for everyone in the culinary scene this year. From extravagant multi-course meals from the likes of Nuna Kitchen and The Carbon Bar to Marben‘s vegan-friendly menu, or head to your favourite local pub for what’s sure to a celebratory vibe.

Head to an NYE Party

Looking for a wild party this year? Well, you’ve got options. Get dressed up for The Ace Hotel’s Masked Ball or New Year’s at The CN Tower… or put your party shoes on for a night of dancing at Rebel, El Mocambo’s 80s-themed night, The Rec Room, and more. Check local listings, as there is no shortage of party options this year.

Treat Yourself to an Evening at Home

There’s no shame in spurning an evening of big expectations in favour of a quiet night at home. Settle in, order your favourite local dish and spend the night with friends, family, or alone catching up on the year’s best film and television.
