The City of Calgary is inviting Calgarians to come downtown for a free family event. There will be a family dance party in the Municipal Atrium from 7pm to 9pm, followed by an outdoor celebration and skating party on Olympic Plaza from 9pm to midnight. New Year ’s Eve will conclude with a spectacular multi-media and pyrotechnic countdown to bring in the New Year.
To ensure public safety, Macleod Trail northbound between 9th and 6th Avenues, and 8th Avenue between MacLeod Trail and 1st Street S.E. will be closed to traffic from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. in order to accommodate the New Year’s Eve event. CTrain service along 7th Avenue will not be interrupted. Bus services will be detoured to avoid road closures. Calgary Transit is providing late night New Year’s Eve service with CTrains running every 15 minutes with the last CTrain leaving downtown at 3 a.m., and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 17, 24, 112, 301, and 302 SE BRT bus routes will be running every 30-45 minutes with last trips leaving downtown at approximately 3 a.m.
