London’s annual New Year’s Eve in the Park presented by WSIB returns on Sunday, December 31 from 7 p.m. to midnight in Victoria Park.
Victoria Park will come alive with two firework displays, live music and entertainment, and outdoor skating - all while visitors enjoy a free hot chocolate and the thousands of holiday lights in Victoria Park!
Londoners will have the opportunity to ring in 2024 with two fantastic fireworks displays presented by Drewlo – one at 9 p.m. for families and children, and another at the stroke of midnight.
The entertainment will flow non-stop at Victoria Park, with local performers and musicians taking the stage throughout the night. Local children’s entertainers The Thinking Caps and Saidat will kick things off at 7 p.m. Local musicians Brothers Wilde, Simple Reflections - Latin Power, and the Forest City London Music Awards All-Star Band will grace the stage from 8 p.m. until midnight.
Londoners are encouraged to bring their own skates to shred some ice on the Victoria Park skating rink. During the event, skate rentals will be available at the Kiwanis Memorial Bandshell concession for $8.00 per person.
New Year’s Eve in the Park is a community-driven event supported by the City of London and sponsors including the WSIB, Drewlo Holdings, LiUNA Local 1059, McCormick Canada, 97.5 Virgin Radio, Pure Country 93, and CTV London.
