Nelson’s New Year's Eve Countdown on the Church Steps

is a great place to dance your way into 2019!

Meet at Celebration Central in the city to farewell 2018 and welcome in the New Year with a fantastic lineup of live bands.

Kicking off at 8pm, popular Nelson bands Immigrants and Zorn will tease out the vibe of good feeling before headline act Blue River Baby – a powerhouse six-piece originals band from Wellington – takes the stage with an energetic explosion of soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, funk and ska.

This is a family-friendly event, with fireworks after the countdown.  

Please note—public streets are alcohol-free. 

There will be zero tolerance for alcohol or underage drinking.
