Chi-Town Rising: Chicago’s First Massive New Year’s Eve Celebration

Cancel your New Year’s Eve plans! Beginning this year, the Chicago Riverwalk will be home to a brand new outdoor, public celebration called “Chi-Town Rising.” Eventgoers can ring in the New Year with a major fireworks show, music headliners and of course, a countdown.

Chi-Town Rising will be held along the Chicago River between Michigan Ave and Columbus Drive, the “older” portions of the Riverwalk. The midnight countdown will also feature a giant Chicago star rising into the night sky.

“The ascending star symbolizes our collective history of meeting challenges head-on and seeing opportunities in every new adventure,” said John Murray, Executive Producer of Chi-Town Rising. “And it represents our aspirations rising to embrace the New Year.”
