Jacksonville has a great range of new year parties, with the NYE Jacksonville Landing party and fireworks, Jax New Year's Party and the New Year's Eve River Bash among the top parties to attract the crowds.
The city also has a wide range of new years celebrations and fun party activities in the town's many bars, clubs and restaurants. It isn't the most well known of the Florida new year party destinations but if you do spend time here over the festive season you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for huge concerts and fireworks displays though Miami might be more you style, check out all the new year's eve events in Miami new year's eve.
The town is focused on the St Johns River and the Jacksonville Beaches scattered along the Atlantic Coast, collectively locally often just referred to as The Beach and including Mayport, Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach - these ocean front locations are the focal point for many of the spectacular fireworks you will see lighting up the sky as midnight and 2019 arrives.
The new year party to welcome 2017 saw the arrival of the NYE Bowl Bash free concert in Jacksonville, although this proved to be a one-off event and was replaced last year by a new year's eve celebration at the Jacksonville Landing.
We expect to see this return again for new year's eve 2019, and should once again feature live music throughout the afternoon and evening (starting from 4pm) followed by a spectacular fireworks display at midnight. Full details and lineup to follow.
