Adelaide’s New Year’s Eve 2019 | Elder Park | 31 Dec 2019


Adelaide’s New Year’s Eve 2019

Celebrate the year that was at the city’s premier Riverbank event, Adelaide’s New Year’s Eve. With a jam-packed program of family-friendly live music, entertainment and TWO spectacular HomeStart Finance Fireworks displays, it’s guaranteed to be the biggest party in town!

Kids Zone

Keep the little ones entertained in the dedicated Kids Zone, with a carnival-like atmosphere the whole family can enjoy and dazzling performances in the Little Palais and on the Street Theatre stage by Monski Mouse, Mute Matt and Dandyman, just to name a few.

There will also be a pop-up play space hosted by Climbing Tree with fun nature-inspired crafts and water-play activities to keep little hands busy.

For those parked in picnic spots, performers will also be roving the Park, entertaining the crowds with their delightful antics.


Homestart Fireworks at 9pm and Midnight

The first HomeStart Fireworks display hits the sky just after sundown at 9pm – perfect for little party-goers with the final spectacular show at midnight following the countdown into the New Year.

Elder Park’s historic Rotunda will be bathed in light, providing a stunning platform for this year’s local music and dance performances.

There’ll be delicious food aplenty, sure to please event the fussiest little foodies. Select from a huge variety of global cuisines, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free otherwise feel free to bring your own picnic basket full of goodies.

There will be dedicated licensed areas to enjoy a drink. Free drinking water will be available, so bring your reusable water bottle.

Please note for the comfort of guests this is a non-smoking event. No BYO alcohol. This will also be a single-use plastic-straw free event.

A message from the City of Adelaide:

New Year’s Eve is almost here. We know that many South Australians have been hit hard by bushfires in the lead up to Christmas and the New Year. Some have suggested that we should cancel our New Year’s Eve fireworks and reallocate the funding to bushfire relief, but our fireworks are planned and contracted months in advance. We are instead encouraging people who attend the event to donate to the Vinnies SA Bushfire Appeal. We will have volunteers on the ground collecting donations that will go directly to those people affected. Alternatively, you can visit the Vinnies website and make a donation:
