New Year’s Eve: Tuesday, December 31, 8:00pm-Midnight
301 N. Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33132
It’s time to ring in the new year and Bayfront Park is the place to be for the largest FREE party in South Florida! Join us for a Dance Party with Funky Frank and count down to midnight with Miami’s own "Big Orange"! At the south end of the park, this New Year’s Eve icon will slowly ascend the side of the InterContinental Hotel, reaching the top at midnight in conjunction with a grand display of fireworks shot over beautiful Biscayne Bay.
No bottles, cans, coolers, or personal fireworks can be brought into the park.
Bayfront Park’s New Year’s Eve is presented by Bayfront Park Management Trust, a limited agency of the City of Miami, with support from the City of Miami, the Mayor and the Miami City Commission. Additional support is provided by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, the Mayor, and the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners; The Greater Miami Host Committee, Bayside Marketplace, and Infinity Sound Productions. Our fine sponsors include The Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald and Waste Services of Florida, Inc.
