Where to Go For New Year’s Eve in Philadelphia

A Story By

New Year’s Eve can be a high-pressure time to have the best night at a great spot, and with so many options in Philadelphia, we’re featuring five of our favorites. Read on to see what you should do for NYE in Philly!

PC: Moshulu

1. Fireworks at Moshulu

Moshulu really knows how to show out for an event, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. With the purchase of a ticket, you receive a three-course meal from 3 to 6 pm, with gorgeous fireworks beginning at 6 to ring in the new year. 

📍 Location

401 S Christopher Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19106

2. Hijinx Festival

This EDM festival is held on both December 30th and December 31st to celebrate the new year with plenty of lights, dancing, and heart-pumping music from various different artists! Doors open at 4:30 pm on both nights, and some performers include Alison Wonderland, Louis the Child, Excision, and Griz. 

📍 Location

Pennsylvania Convention Center / 1101 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19107

PC: Blue Cross RiverRink

3. New Year's Eve Party on Ice at Blue Cross RiverRink

See the Penn’s Landing fireworks on the ice this New Year’s Eve at the Blue Cross RiverRink! Skating is held from 6 to 12:30 pm, and features plenty to drink, eat, and see, as the Rivers Casino Fireworks are being held right next door at 6 and again at midnight. If you want to watch in warmth (and don’t trust yourself on skates), you can sit under heat lamps or by the fire at the outdoor food vendors, such as Chickie’s and Pete’s and Skelly’s Pizza. You even get a complimentary Ferris Wheel ride with the purchase of skating!

📍 Location

101 S Christopher Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19106

4. Rivers Casino Fireworks on the Waterfront

The premiere firework show of New Year’s Eve in Philly, the Rivers Casino Fireworks are made ten times as special when seen from the Waterfront at Penn’s Landing. There are two shows, one beginning at 6 pm, and the next at midnight to welcome the new year with beautiful fireworks.
