2023 NOLA New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show
to Light Up the Midnight Sky

Welcome 2024 with the traditional free 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 other 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.

Start your New Year’s celebration with the Allstate Sugar Bowl Parade, which will roll on Sunday, December 31, at 2:30 p.m. through the French Quarter. Then explore the French Quarter restaurants, bars, shops, museums, and local entertainment venues as we await the greatly anticipated NOLA New Year’s Eve midnight fireworks show! On Monday, January 1, catch the 90 th Annual Allstate Sugar Bowl Football Classic with kickoff at 7:45 p.m.

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. “This community project is embraced by so many dedicated sponsors,” says Bobbi Mannino, CCCC Vice President. “This treasured tradition has been produced by the Crescent City Countdown Club for more than two decades solely because of the continued community support. We are so grateful.”
