New Year’s Eve 2021 will be Canberra’s first major event following this year’s COVID-19 lockdown. This year, Canberrans are invited to celebrate by enjoying a family and community evening picnicking along the shores of Lake Burley Griffin from 6pm and bringing in the New Year with fireworks displays at 9pm and midnight. 

To help stimulate economic activity in the city, Events ACT is also inviting the local hospitality and accommodation businesses to be part of this year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations. Businesses are encouraged to develop promotional activities, activations, pop up events and special packages targeting event attendees, both Canberra residents and interstate visitors, who will be celebrating New Year’s Eve in Canberra.

Your activities can target those who wish to picnic at the lake prior to viewing the fireworks, or those who would like to dine or stay overnight in the city.

If you are interested in taking part of this event, you can download the Industry Engagement Information pack to find out more and see some suggestions for activations. For more information, visit the Events ACT’s website.
