Chicago New Year’s Eve Events for 2017

New Year’s Eve is around the corner.  It’s time to mark the end and beginning of a new year in style. As a resident or visitor of Chicago, this beautiful city holds much in store for you on the New Year’s Eve. From parties and fireworks to music, live performances, restaurant celebrations, and family friendly new year’s activities, you will hardly lack something to keep you engaged on the night of 31st.

Start off by visiting the Navy Pier. No New Year celebrations in Chicago are complete without a visit to this fascinating destination with rides, attractions, entertainment, and incredible  fireworks that are perfectly synchronized to some inspiring music and launched over Lake Michigan. You can walk by the lake or come in a boat to view the fireworks.

Next, head off to the Chi-Town Rising for an untamed big-name act that will blow your mind. Musical performances, grand fireworks display, and the gradual ascension of a 70-foot tall star will give you the best memories for a New Year’s Eve.

The New Year’s Eve most likely doesn’t end well without a party. In Chicago, there is more than you can handle. The Chicago Scene New Year’s Eve Party has been voted the best New Year’s party in Chicago by several media outlets. Join in and enjoy Chicago’s hottest DJ’s, 4 ballrooms, a breath-taking balloon drop, premium liquor served at over 40 fully staffed bars, and a champagne toast at midnight. You can also opt for the Big Night Chicago New Year’s Eve Gala, NYE Soiree at Hilton Chicago, NYE Soiree at JW Marriot Chicago or  NYE at Hard Rock Hotel if you want to party like a rock star.

For some family-friendly New Years Eve fun activities, join the Chicago Children’s Museum for its annual Noon Year’s Eve.  The Zoo Year’s Eve 2017 celebration also offers plenty of New Year’s Eve fun for families, including fun games, party favors, and early fireworks among more.
