Early Eve offers you and the family all the excitement of a New Year’s Eve celebration, without the late curfew.
With entertainment from 6pm, Early Eve at Yarra Park will provide the whole family with a range of free activities. Participate in the New Year gift exchange, drop into the dress-up station, have your face painted, or be part of a unique community art installation. For the musically inclined, let the kids loose on karaoke or sit back and enjoy a local line-up of fantastic stage acts.
At 9.30pm, adults and children alike will join us in the official Early Eve countdown, which will culminate in a spectacular midnight-worthy fireworks display.
With easy access to and from the city via public transport, Early Eve is the perfect event for all-ages fun. Bring your picnic rug, find a grassy spot, and share a few hours of fun with your family as we celebrate the New Year together!
