Annual New Year's Eve Fireworks are CANCELLED for "Welcoming In 2021"
Due to COVID-19 and the inability to secure needed financial support, the Crescent City Countdown Club sadly announces the CANCELLATION of the annual
New Year’s Fireworks on the River.
This event has been sponsored by individual businesses and citywide community organizations
for the enjoyment of locals and holiday visitors.
This year would have been our 30th Anniversary...
we plan to celebrate the big “30” in December 2021 when we welcome in 2022!
This is what took place LAST YEAR to welcome in 2020!
The Traditional New Year’s Eve French Quarter Fireworks Show to Welcome 2020!
The Crescent City Countdown Club (CCCC) will welcome 2020 with the traditional NOLA New Year’s Eve midnight fireworks display. This year’s display is sponsored by New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, Allstate Sugar Bowl, The Berger Company, French Quarter Festivals, Inc., and New Orleans & Company, with other dedicated community sponsors. The fireworks show is FREE and can be seen from the East and West Banks of the Mississippi River from the Outlet Collection at Riverwalk to Crescent Park at the French Market.
For the very first seconds of 2020, fireworks will light up the dark sky above the Mighty Mississippi River in downtown New Orleans. Choreographed to a sound track of New Orleans’ own Trombone Shorty, Big Chief, The Meters, and Dr. John, along with the fight songs of Allstate Sugar Bowl contenders, the University of Georgia and the University of Baylor, an intense barrage of fireworks in every color of the rainbow will burst from heights of 100 feet to 800 feet. A powerful grand finale that will be shot to U2’s “The Saints Are Coming” will bring this pyrotechnic production to a dramatic and memorable close as 2020 begins.
The CCCC, through J & M Displays, will provide an iPhone and Android app that will allow anyone who downloads the app to hear the show music in real time in sync to the fireworks. Go to CrescentCityCountdown.com and scan the QR code.
With an amplified production value and additional pyrotechnics, theatrical lighting, and projection effects, Solomon Group will produce the historic fleur-de-lis drop atop JAX Brewery on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
The Crescent City Countdown Club is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization officially formed in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina exclusively to preserve and produce New Orleans’ traditional New Year’s Eve festivities in the French Quarter. “We are grateful to all of our sponsors who make it possible to produce this treasured New Year’s Eve tradition each year,” says CCCC Secretary/Treasurer Adrienne Thomas. “Our grassroots efforts have truly bloomed into an internationally recognized tradition.”

About the Fleur de Lis...
In New Orleans, rather than drop a traditional glowing ball to welcome the new year, a large fleur de lis is lowered during the countdown to midnight.
With an amplified production value and additional pyrotechnics, theatrical lighting, and projection effects, Solomon Group is excited to once again produce the historic fleur-delis drop atop JAX Brewery on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
Download the app to hear the choreographed fireworks music.
The fireworks show is choreographed to a soundtrack of New Orleans’ own Fats Domino classics, along with the spirited fight songs of our visiting Sugar Bowl University of Georgia and University of Texas football teams. This year the CCCC, through J & M Displays, will provide an iPhone and Android app that will allow anyone who downloads the app to hear the show music in real time in sync to the fireworks.
