End the Year in New Orleans, One of Trip Savvy’s 2017 Top Seven “Best Places to Celebrate New Year’s Eve.”
The arrival of 2018 means something special to people who love New Orleans – it marks the 300th anniversary of the founding of our city. Instead of staying home this year and watching the ball drop on TV, why not join us in the French Quarter for the kick off of our Centennial year celebration – New Year’s Eve! When you stay at one of the boutique hotels in the French Quarter Collection, you won’t have to worry about having a designated driver. There are parties within walking distance in every direction. Check out what’s going on in the Vieux Carré.
Say goodbye to 2017 with live music, a fleur-de-lis drop at midnight, and a spectacular fireworks show in Jackson Square. You might just see celebrities from Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest (they’ll be celebrating the arrival of the New Year in the Central Time Zone here).
If you missed the Krewe of Jingle parade this year, fear not – you still have a chance to catch some throws at The Allstate Sugar Bowl New Year’s Eve Parade in the French Quarter on New Year’s Eve. The good times begin rolling at 3:30 p.m.
Get a great view of the fireworks show from the Steamboat NATCHEZ, which offers a festive buffet dinner, open bar and a live dance band. Learn more.
As you might expect, Bourbon Street is wall-to-wall people on New Year’s Eve with live music and libations. Come be a part of one of the biggest parties in the country on December 31st.
Every year, the House of Blues has a great concert and an open bar for New Year's Eve. Check out what’s planned for this year here.
For authentic New Orleans jazz, get your tickets to Hall Lang Syne, the party at Preservation Hall. Years from now you’ll remember the New Year you spent on this hallowed ground in the birthplace of jazz. Learn more.
