Edmonton New Year's Eve ... and bye until next year.

And just before we say goodbye for a few days, here are some great ideas for celebrating New Year's Eve in Edmonton:

  • Canada vs. USA: Cheer on Canada at the World Juniors. Can't score a ticket to the team? Head to any pub in the city or grab a seat really close to the action at the Molson Canadian Hockey House at the Edmonton Expo Centre (Northlands). 
  • Dine & Dance: An elegant evening of fine food and dancing at Sabor Divino.
  • Eat Local: 4 d'Lishious courses of locally sourced ingredients, beautifully prepared at d'Lish Urban Kitchen & Wine Bar
  • Jazz & Prosecco: Live Jazz music, decadent tapas, sparking prosecco and an intimate setting for 50 people at Sommerville Wine.
  • Go Clubbin': A round-up of Edmonton's best club-thumpin' parties.
  • Pub Crawl: No need to narrow your choice down to one bar on this New Year's Crawl, get your party on at Public House, The Ranch, The Old Strathcona Rack, Vinyl, Oil City Roadhouse and ofcourse, the mystery stop.
  • Make a Reservation: Use OpenTable.com to easily secure reservations at restaurants like Characters Fine Dining, The Marc, Packrat Louie, Red Ox Inn or Wildflower Grill . 
  • Downtown: Metropolis Edmonton International Winter Festival starts on Dec. 31.
  • Free Happenings: Taste of Winter (soups, chilies and other winter fare), Polar Brewhouse, skating, street dance party and fireworks... all downtown Edmonton!
  • Go Swingin': Eat, drink, dance and watch the fireworks with The Swing Kings at Edmonton Delta South.
  • Champagne Brunch: Celebrate on January 1st with a delicious champagne brunch at Madison Grill. (Or enjoy an 6-course dinner menu on New Year's Eve).
