Ringing in the New Year in Toronto can mean club nights, comedy shows, family events, outdoor countdowns, parties with friends or a quiet night in your living room, depending on your style.
For families trying to celebrate with younger children, it can be hard to find somewhere to go together on New Year's Eve. Luckily there are several special events planned in Toronto just for kids and their parents, and even more if you're willing to drive a little outside the city.
You can also enjoy stage shows or plenty of comedy on New Year's Eve. Almost all of the performances on December 31st give you an option to include dinner as part of a ticket package and a toast or party to ring in the new at midnight.
New Year's Parties
The TTC, GO Transit and connecting routes such as Mississauga Transit and the YRT/VIVA all offer free rides during various hours of New Year's Eve. Get the details on when the free trips start in your area.
Even if you think you have an alternate plan for getting home - transit, a ride with friends, or your own car - it's a good idea to have a few cab numbers at the ready, just in case.
