Families can ring in the new year with shows being put together by local artists.

Instead of braving the cold, this year Manitobans will be celebrating the new year warmly at home.


ONE Worship Night

The group is back for one night only. Almost one year ago, the group hosted their last live performance.

They are returning for New Year's Eve, spending the countdown praising God. The event begins at 9 p.m. on Facebook and YouTube.


Manitoba Museum

A mid-day countdown is relieving the secrets of the Nonsuch. The event is from 11:15 a.m. to noon, but available for 24 hours after going live.


The Forks


One of the most iconic celebrations in Winnipeg will be continuing this year. The Forks' Virtual New Year's Eve features prerecorded performances from artists such as Leanne Zacharias, Sebastian Gaskin, and Andrina Turenne. Don Amero is hosting.

No fireworks will be set off at their usual site this year. Earlier the site, along with Archangel Fireworks, created and recorded a firework show.

Manitobans can view the half-hour show anytime starting at 5 p.m. Thursday until 1 a.m. on New Years Day.


Enigma Escapes' Say Goodbye to 2020

The virtual party is encouraging Manitobans to be "game masters" with friends and family over Zoom. The games use videos and microphones to keep connected. There is no required time of day to start the event and there is no countdown. 

They suggest playing virtually with four to eight people. The gameplay will last 45 minutes. 


Hindsight's 2020

The virtual variety show features more than 30 acts, including Al Simmons and Kelley Bado. Zach Collaros and Mark Chipman will be joining as well for fireside interviews.

The group says to expect unexpected guests. 


Children's Museum Craft: Confetti Launcher 

While the children's attraction is not hosting their own New Year's Eve event, they are sharing a craft for young ones to make at home. 


New Year's Day Métis Celebration

At noon, the Manitoba Metis Federation will be showcasing food, music, and storytelling.
