Ring in the New Year with Spectacular Fireworks at Navy Pier

Crisp, autumn air means it's time to start thinking about the holidays again, and there are great family events always to be found at Navy Pier, like New Years Eve Fireworks in Chicago. This annual celebration is a tradition Midwesterners and travelers enjoy. Concierge Preferred invites you and your family to welcome the New Year with us. When you think of Windy City fun, consult our entertainment guide for the best local events.

Sparkle and Boom!

Bundle up the family and head down to historic Navy Pier to see the end of the year festivities! Come find a cozy spot inside of our glass-enclosed promenades to take in the fireworks or stroll along the pier to get a prime view.

We understand little one's might not be able to stay up to late, so we schedule a special family fireworks display that kicks off at 7:00pm. Then for all the late night revelers in the city, there's a second show that happens exactly at midnight to start the New Year right.

Why Not Make Day of It?

There are plenty of things to do inside for kids and adults at Navy Pier during the holidays. There's the world-class Chicago Children's Museum for kids age 10 and younger. You can drive a fire engine, climb in a ship, make some art to take home, or hideaway in our tree house. The possibilities are endless in our world of fun, and there are special exhibits to take advantage of, too!

There are great restaurants and pubs to enjoy in Navy Pier, as well. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., the Billy Goat Tavern, Capi's Italian Kitchen, Harry Caray's Tavern, and more are here to cater to a wide variety of tastes.

Chicago Shakespeare Theater is also located on our grounds. Purchase your tickets for an evening of sophisticated entertainment, followed with a satisfying dinner, and top it off with a fantastic fireworks display. It's all happening on Chicago's lake front New Years Eve at Navy Pier.
