If you’re not in Québec City for New Year's Eve, you’ll miss the best party in Canada!

Still unsure what to do this New Year's Eve? Looking for a plan that will blow all other parties out of the water? Want to make unforgettable memories with friends and family that you’ll be talking about for weeks - no, months - to come?
 
If so, then you have no choice but to join the best party in Canada and say ‘Goodbye’ to 2015 by attending the New Year's Eve celebrations in Québec City.
 
Starting December 27th, Quebec City’s famed Grande Allée will be closed to traffic and will be turned into a stunning holiday paradise. Illuminated by lights and covered in snow (hopefully not too much!), the picturesque old town will welcome visitors from around the world.
 
Start things off on a high note by visiting one of the many restaurants and bars that will be opening their heated outdoor patios once again this year. Enjoy the fab views, delicious food and traditional music every day from 11AM to 11PM and really soak up the ambiance.

Afterwards, browse the picturesque Christmas Market at the Old Port with more than 1,000 regional products and handicrafts, walk down the Rue du Petit-Champlain and Place Royale, which will be covered with lights, bringing old world charm to life, and don’t forget to take advantage of the ice rink on Place D’Youville. What’s better than skating while enjoying Québec City’s historic buildings and the beauty of the square? Not much!
 
Come December 31st, bundle up and join tens of thousands of revelers to welcome 2016 in style on the Grande Allée, as it morphs into one huge dance floor.
 
Starting at 9PM, 10 artists, including a DJ, singers and even a fiddler, will hit the stage to pump up partygoers. Expect to hear traditional songs and plenty of fireworks.
 
Then, as the clock strikes 11PM and 2016 gets closer and closer, Parisian house music producer Tchami, named one of the 100 best DJs on the planet by DJ Mag, will hit the stage to amp up the atmosphere and keep the party going. After a big pyrotechnics show at midnight, the bash will continue with Tchami until 1AM.
 
What did we tell you? UNFORGETTABLE!
