Fireworks and free entertainment for New Year’s Eve

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

Canberra is set to welcome in 2016 with a fantastic line-up of free entertainment including two spectacular fireworks displays, an all-ages concert in Civic Square and a high-energy dance party in Garema Place.

Live music lovers can head to Civic Square from 7pm to enjoy music from a well-known Australian band and top local acts.

Bass in the Place will get Garema Place crowds grooving from 9pm with a high-energy dance party.

Two state-of-the-art pyrotechnics displays will light up the sky at 9pm and midnight, with best viewing from Civic Square.

There is something for everyone this New Year’s Eve in the city, so come out and enjoy the free entertainment and party atmosphere.
