New Year's Eve 2024 Events and Celebrations in Miami

Big Orange New Year's Countdown
Fireworks, Cruises, Parties and Events

As we get ready to wave 2023 goodbye, we are looking forward to the return of our iconic New Year's Eve celebrations! Miami might not be Times Square, but the city does put on the show come New Year's Eve... and not only that, we get to welcome 2024 in balmy 70 degree weather... on the beach... what could be better?!

New Year's Eve Fireworks Miami

The annual countdown bash in Bayfront Park featuring many of today's big-name artists and the fireworks on the bay are back this year, and so are the great variety of countdown celebrations, gala cruises, rooftop bashes... and we do have our very own "Ball Drop" or rather "Orange Drop"...

But Bayfront Park is not the only game in town. The City of Miami Beach, not to be outdone, normally hosts its own mega party. Ocean Drive is where the action is. The party scene here will be sizzling, fireworks and countdown at midnight and a host of parties all around... For those wanting to welcome 2024 with toes in the sand head to South Beach's Lummus Park.

And the repertoire of New Year's hot parties and events range from the iconic celebrations at the Fontainebleau to New Year's Eve yacht galas and rooftop fireworks bashes.

For those wanting to toast the New Year in a more calm and peaceful vibe and away from the mayhem, many venues will be hosting special New Year's Eve gala dinners to gather with family and friends as we count down to 2024. Venues in Coconut Grove, Surfside, Sunny Isles, Key Biscayne and Coral Gables are tops.

Hotels during this period are running at high capacity. Besides the gorgeous weather and top-notch roster of NYE celebrations, annual events like the Orange Bowl will also draw the crowds. Needless to say, you need to book your hotel and accomodations as early as possible. Here is a guide for New Year's Eve Hotels in Miami.

Check out what's on this year in Miami to welcome 2024 with a bang, details are still trickling in, so check back often for updates to this page:
