Celebrate the end of 2021 and the New Year with a bang at Parramatta.

This year, the City of Parramatta is taking things up a notch with large-scale New Years' Eve fireworks and celebratory events at five council locations, complete with live entertainment, music, and dancing performances.

New Year’s Eve midnight fireworks aren’t the only thing the City of Parramatta has to offer to close out the year. From stellar and luxurious venues for your New Year’s Eve party to lavish hotel rooms for your well-deserved staycation, there’s no end to what you can enjoy this New Year’s Eve in Parramatta.

Enjoy Parramatta New Year’s Eve Fireworks Event

As per tradition, the City of Parramatta is once again putting on stunning and grand firework displays this New Year’s. Parramatta’s 2021 New Year’s Eve fireworks event is a break from this past year’s online events and is sure to make for a memorable New Years' Eve celebration. 

Unlike 2020’s which was hosted in Parramatta Park, this year’s New Year's Eve celebrations will be held at five separate locations:

Tickets to the spectacular firework viewing are $5 each (free for children under 12 years of age), with 100% of ticket proceeds to be donated to The Salvation Army and their Project CSC. All five sites will open at 5 pm on the 31st of December 2021 and feature food trucks and food vendors, live music, and most importantly, tonnes of space for BYO (bring your own) picnics. 

The event is family-friendly, meaning small amounts of alcohol are only allowed for parties over 18 years. You can make yourself comfortable before the 9 pm fireworks display by bringing your own picnic baskets filled with food, foldable chairs, and picnic rugs. Bear in mind that cooking equipment such as camping gas burners is not allowed on the sites for safety reasons.

As a combined effort to support Western Sydney’s medically complex children while also being a family-friendly event for New Year’s, Parramatta’s 2021 fireworks showcase is set to light up the New Year’s Eve sky and make for an unforgettable memory. You can purchase your tickets from certain approved third parties like Eventbrite. There is no separate booking fee.
