New Year’s Eve Parties 2017-2018 in Emilia Romagna

Whether it is a simple evening with friends, awaiting a toast in the square, a big concert in the city, a gala dinner in grand style or a party with the best Djs, New Year’s Eve is always a magic and unique moment to be spent together, with the people you love most.

Along the Riviera, from the inland to the sea, not a single town will miss out on this big occasion.


Starting from the south, in Cattolica, Sunday, December 31 the main event is in piazzale Roosvelt with a lot of live music and energizing dj sets.

Also in Cesena "Impazza la piazza" with the traditional wait with music, dancing, sweets, and hot drinks for everyone. Special guests this year are the Nomadi in concert.


Riccione offers us the "Deejay Night", what more can we say. The radio dream team will take over with Rudy Zerbi, La Pina, Valentina Ricci, Chicco Giuliani together with Ghemon, one of the most talented Italian hip hop artists, and with Shade, known for his summer hit  "Bene ma non benissimo". Kicking off 2018 is the very young youtuber Marco Leonardi, Jo M, the Nameless, and the teen idols Benji & Fede together with Annalisa.

"The longest New Year’s in the world" awaits you again this year in Rimini. Nina Zilli and Daniele Silvestri will be the big stars who put on the concert in piazzale Fellini. Of course at midnight there will be the show of fireworks, in a unique setting between the sea and the Grand Hotel dear to Federico Fellini. The center of the party will move downtown: an ideal Street New Year will join Marina Centro to the heart of the city, invading theaters, squares, streets and cultural places of the city with its notes (between piazza Cavour and piazza Malatesta, the Teatro Galli and the Complesso degli Agostiniani). From events such as the Corrida on New Year’s Eve to the craziest parties in the trendiest clubs of the city, and even Aida by Giuseppe Verdi on the first of the year, you will just have to choose.



Not far from Rimini, in the town of San Leo, just inland, there is a double event: on December 31 in the square with “Timeless Rhythm” with DJ Nik followed by a pyrotechnic show at the Fortress; Sunday, January 1 with Il Concerto del Tullipan, from 1930 to 1950 twenty years of songs and music for a toast full of memories and laden with hope.


Going up along the Adriatic Riveria, Gatteo Mare celebrates on Saturday, December 30 with the classical music concert of the vocal ensemble of the Il Porto di Leonardo, and on the first of the year with a big concert in piazza Vesi in the company of Joe Di Brutto and the unmissable show of Moreno il Biondo and his orchestra.


Cervia, instead, gets ready on Saturday, December 31 to celebrate the last day of the year with an exciting display of fireworks accompanied by enthralling music and the traditional  “burning” of the Magazzino del sale along the Darsena. Followed by dj sets and more live music to celebrate the new year.


You can exchange good wishes also in Ravenna in Piazza del Popolo with a big party enlivened by the music of Radio Studio Delta with Dj Yuri Maru and Mario Romario Voice and Vjing by Matteo Bevilacqua. This year, the evening of December 31 will be enhanced by the event Ravenna In Light which will see the Arian Baptistry, Palazzetto Veneziano, Palazzo Rasponi Murat and the Basilica of San Giovanni Evangelista as stars. Many locations in downtown will be open during the night for aperitifs, dinners, events and entertainment. The party, lastly, will move to the Artificerie Almagià, where until the first light of dawn, you can toast the New Year year while dancing to music.



In Imola one of the events that should not be missed is the great village "A Natale Zero Pare" which, as the name (Nothing is like Christmas) suggests, invites us to leave all our daily life problems at the door and abandon ourselves in the joyful and festive atmosphere of the holidays and conviviality. From 7pm street food dinner with live music, artists, Dj sets all followed by the show "Sonics in Toren" with acrobatic artists and performers created and directed by Alessandro Pietrolini.


In Bologna, as is the tradition, the arrival of the new year will be celebrated in Piazza Maggiore with a big party enlivened by the music of a dj who will perform on the balcony of Palazzo del Podestà and by the burning of the Vecchione made by an artist, which is burnt at midnight in the Piazza. And on January 1? Everyone to Auditorium Manzoni with Valzer and the Orchestra Filarmonica of Bologna directed by Maestro Yoshida.


In Ferrara all the events move around the imposing Estense Castle which, as is the tradition, at midnight will be lit up with lights and fireworks in a pyro-musical show known as one of the most impressive in Italy. The wait will not be difficult thanks to the double show “in the warmth” of the Teatro Nuovo  with the "Makkeroni a capodanno Makkeroni tutto l'anno", or in the square with 50 artists who will take turns on the stage. The star of the show will be the Summertime Choir, a choir with 35 voices, directed by the maestro Walter Ferrulli who will perform a series of big international rock and pop hits. After the burning, the evening continues with an energizing Dj set. And to kick off the night right, those who want to enjoy a dinner in grand style will find the best options in Ferrara.



In Reggio Emilia you can await midnight, starting at 10.45pm, with the big show in Piazza Martiri del 7 luglio. Taking the stage is the surreal irony of Nino Frassica and the playful music of the Los Plaggers Band.


In Parma New Year’s Eve is celebrated with the New Year’s Gran Galà at the Teatro Regio: at the suggestive concert held by the Orchestra dell'Opera Italiana followed by an elegant gala dinner.


Salsomaggiore Terme awaits you the first of the year with the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini at the Teatro Nuovo.


In the northern most corner of Emilia, for those who want to give themselves an evening dedicated to elegance here are the Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza which offer memorable moments among refined dinners, dance parties, fireworks and candlelight guided tours of the manors.
