The Traditional New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show Returns to Welcome 2022!

The Crescent City Countdown Club (CCCC) will welcome 2022 with the traditional NOLA New Year’s Eve midnight fireworks display, the backdrop for all of the exciting New Year's festivities for our great city!  This year’s display is made possible by New Orleans & Company with the Allstate Sugar Bowl, The Berger & Tiller Families, Bourbon Street Drinkery, J & M Displays, French Quarter Festivals, Inc., along with many 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 minutes of 2022, fireworks will light up the dark sky above the Mighty Mississippi River in downtown New Orleans.   An intense barrage of fireworks in every color of the rainbow will burst from heights of 100 feet to 800 feet including the team colors of the Allstate Sugar Bowl contenders, the Ole Miss Rebels, and the Baylor Bears.


Allstate Sugar Bowl New Year's Eve Parade returns to New Orleans in 2022! A Mardi Gras-style parade with floats, bands, and other participants, entertains fans young and old prior to the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

The parade, which is scheduled to start on New Year's Eve at 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of Elysian Fields Avenue and Decatur Street, will travel through the French Quarter up Decatur Street along the Mississippi River. It will pass iconic landmarks such as The Old US Mint, the French Market, Cafe du Monde, and Jackson Square.

CCCC · Crescent City Countdown 2021

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. “Our grassroots efforts have truly bloomed into an internationally recognized tradition", says CCCC Secretary/Treasurer Adrienne Thomas. "The nearly 2-yr pandemic and Hurricane Ida posed many challenges to secure funding.  We are so very grateful to all of our dedicated sponsors who have come through to make it possible to produce this treasured New Year’s Eve tradition each year."

From all of us at the Crescent City Countdown Club,
have a safe, healthy, and happy new year, everyone!
