New Year's Eve Events in Old Strathcona

Thursday December 24 , 2015

Looking for a fun way to ring in the new year? Here are five unique events happening in Old Strathcona on New Year’s Eve:


New Year's Eve with Teatro!

The Teatro theatre troupe is hosting a festive evening of elegant amusements, celebratory music, and a classic Teatro comedic play with a very large cast.

They'll be sharing more information about the production and cast closer to the event but they promise a good time, snacks at intermission, and Celebrity Musical Chairs!  The event starts at 7:30pm and the show runs approximately 2 hours, so you'll still be able to attend any other celebrations or catch the fireworks if you want.

New Year's Eve with Teatro has played to sold out audiences for the past few years and since the Backstage Theatre has 30 fewer seats than the old Varscona, they strongly recommend booking seats as soon as possible.

Sugar Swing Savoy

Swing your way into 2016 in style with Sugar Swing’s recreation of Manhattan’s famous Savoy Ballroom. Come dressed in your best 1940’s fashion for swing dance, food and cocktails, and great music.

In addition to the swing dance party, the event will also include a Soul Lounge, a mini cabaret, and a beginner’s dance lesson at the beginning of the night. If you’re longing to go but don’t have a dance partner, don’t fret!

Membership not required to purchase tickets, however there will not be tickets for sale at the door. The event has sold out for the past four years, so don’t delay!
