06 Street Party 04 Chris Watt CAP

The Street Party is perhaps the best-known event taking place during  Edinburgh's Hogmanay 3 day festival . The New Year street party is a ticketed event that in 2018-2019 ran for seven hours throughout the length of Princes Street, with live bands, a carnival atmosphere and dancing in the streets.

Following countdown fireworks at 9pm, 10pm, and 11pm, the Street Party climaxes at midnight, with a dramatic fireworks display above Edinburgh Castle and from Calton Hill to herald in the New Year. This is followed by a joining of hands as the crowd sings Auld Lang Syne, and more partying into the wee wee hours both on the street and around the city.
