The Traditional New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show
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 BowlThe Berger & Tiller Families, Bourbon Street Drinkery, J & M Displays, and 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, including the team colors of the Allstate Sugar Bowl contenders, the Ole Miss Rebels, and the Baylor Bears¸ will burst from heights of 100 feet to 800 feet.

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 two-year 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."
