Welcome 2023 with the NOLA New Year's Eve Fireworks Show

Welcome 2023 with the traditional NOLA New Year’s Eve midnight fireworks display, the backdrop for all of the exciting New Year's festivities in our great city! Produced by the Crescent City Countdown Club in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy and the New Orleans Tourism and Cultural Fund, this internationally acclaimed tradition is a community project made possible by New Orleans & Company, with Allstate Sugar Bowl, The Berger & Tiller Families, French Quarter Festivals, Inc., J & M Displays, WWL 870AM/105.3FM,, Magic 101.9, and 23 dedicated community sponsors.

The spectacular fireworks display along the historic New Orleans Riverfront in downtown New Orleans can be seen from the East and West Banks of the Mississippi River from the Hilton New Orleans Riverside to Crescent Park at the French Market. At the stroke of midnight an intense
barrage of colors—including team colors of the Allstate Sugar Bowl contenders, University of Alabama and Kansas State—will light up the dark sky! The extraordinary display will feature ten-inch shells that travel 1,000 feet high, then break out across a 1,000-foot span over the Mighty Mississippi. The fireworks show will be streamed live on and WWL Radio Facebook.

Start your New Year’s celebration early with Allstate Sugar Bowl Parade, which will roll on Friday, December 30, in the French Quarter. On Saturday, December 31, catch the 89th Annual Allstate Sugar Bowl Football Classic with kickoff at 11 a.m. Then head to the French Quarter for the greatly anticipated NOLA New Year’s Eve midnight fireworks show!

The spectacular fireworks display is choreographed to music which adds so much energy to our fireworks show. especially for our Sugar Bowl visitors as it includes the fight songs for the University of Alabama and Kansas State.  At 11:59 pm on NYE, click on the link below for the music to play during the fireworks.   PLEASE NOTE:  There is about a 40 second delay before you will hear the music!
