Welcome 2024 with the NOLA New Year's Eve Fireworks Show

Welcome 2024 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 17 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 Washington Huskies and University of Texas Longhorns—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.
