We've already visited some of the main ones: Paris, Sydney, London and Edinburgh but have the ambition to get to as many of the others listed on this site as we can.

We hope you find our listings useful in finding the best NYE fireworks, parties, hotels, concerts, restaurants, cruises and events wherever you are!



Indianapolis New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Clubs, Parties, Hotels, Restaurants

Indianapolis, Indiana, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Monument Circle Christmas lights

So I was looking at the list of US State Capitals that I hadn't yet included on the site to see if there were any really glaringly obvious ones that I has missed out (don't want to be accused of favouritism, although I have to warn if you're a resident of Bismarck it might be  a longer wait...) and there was Indianapolis.

I was of course familiar with the city from the Indy 500, which I'm a big fan of, but I hadn't previously realised what a big city this actually is, with over 1.5 million people in the metropolitan area! That sounds like the kind of city that will be holding some decent sized new year's eve events, so let's see what we've managed to track down...

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


The main location in terms of fireworks displays looks to be the city's Monument Circle, where the iconic Soldiers & Sailors Monument is located. Throughout the holiday season this is the site of the Indy Circle of Lights, the annual centrepiece of the downtown festivities, with the monument decorated with a 250 foot high display featuring over 5000 lights. This is the backdrop for the midnight fireworks on new year's eve, sure to be an impressive spectacle.

This year there is also a Family New Year's Eve event at the Governor Frank O'Bannon Great Hall - this is an alcohol free celebration and includes music and fun with magicians, clowns and other assorted entertainment. The family focus continues with a "balloon drop" at 8pm, fitting for the younger kids who can't stay up until midnight.

There is also the CIROC the New Year Indianapolis event at the Region's Tower, which boasts Indy's only rooftop event space, and with a party that has sold out 4 years in a row is always a popular night, promising live music with DJs Lockstar, Gabby Love and gNO, premium open bar and chanpagne an midnight. Ticket sales here.

There is a glamorous black tie event at the Indianapolis Museum of Art with the New Year's Eve at the IMA party. This is a fundraising event for the museum and includes food, cocktails, champagne, dancing and, of course, plenty of artistic displays.

The Indianapolis New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball is another famous annual event, taking place at the historic Union Station in the downtown area. This party is divided into 3 main areas, with live music in the Grand Hall, top DJ in the Illinois Street Ballroom (transformed for the evening into "The Club") and a more chilled out area in the Iron Horse Lounge, where  The Michaels and Jamestown Revival will be performing.

Another big party this years is at the  Deluxe venue at the Old National Centre where the ONC Underground NYE 2015 event will be taking place, featuring live music by Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos. Ticket sales here.

Elsewhere the many bars and nightclubs of Indianapolis will all be competing for business with their own special events. one way to take in several venues in the one evening is to join in the Til The Ball Falls Bar Crawl NYE 2015, which will be taking in the Tilted Kilt, Taps and Dolls, Kilroys and the Tin Roof. There is also a big new year party at the Bluebird nightclub - get all your club event tickets here.

For those looking for a quieter night, or possibly somewhere to fuel up before hitting the town then there are a plethora of eateries to choose from. The vibrant Indianapolis restaurant scene includes the famous Sushi Club, Fogo De Chao South American style steakhouse, Greek food at the Santorini Kitchen and fine dining at Seasons 52. Check out all the top restaurants and make your reservations online here.
