Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Boston

New Year's Eve is just around the corner. Check out some of the best Boston parties to ring in 2019!

Midnight in Havana Party & Hangover Brunch

Make the New Year a fiesta to remember with two tickets to the Midnight in Havana Party at Casa Caña, an overnight stay with late check out of 3pm, and reservations for two at our Hangover Brunch on January 1.

First Night Boston

Party at Boston's annual First Night from 12pm until 12am! Festivities include local art and music performances, improv comedy, ice skating, fireworks on the Boston Harbor, and a midnight pyrotechnics show in historic Copley Square!

New Year’s Eve Masquerade Party

Looking to boogie? Grab tickets to the New Year’s Eve Masquerade Party in the Back Bay and dance along to a roster of local DJs before clinking glasses at midnight. Be sure to bring a mask — it’s required for entry (and makes the celebration that much more fun.)

New Year’s Eve Cruise

Talk about a party with a view! Mass Bay Lines is offering a New Year’s cruise on the Boston Harbor, complete with DJs, a cash bar, appetizers, and festive party favors. And don't worry about the weather — this yacht is fully heated!

Boston Children’s Museum’s Happy Noon Year

Bringing the kids? Kick off New Year’s Eve early at the Boston Children’s Museum with a crazy hat-making ceremony, followed by a countdown and crystal ball drop at noon! All ages are welcome.
