DEC. 31
Countdown at the Conservatory
Get an early start to 2016 during this family-friendly festivity with crafts and games, and a countdown— every hour from 11am to 3pm. Who knows? By the end of it you might even decode the “Auld Lang Syne” lyrics. (9626 96A St., edmonton.ca/muttart)

DEC. 31
New Year’s Eve Downtown
Feel the body warmth of 20,000 people when you burrow into the crowd for hot cocoa and fresh bannock, before a beautiful fireworks show erupts over City Hall. (Churchill Square, exploreedmonton.com)

The EPIC Bash
Get on Santa’s nice list early this year with a ticket to the Edmonton Potterwatch Institute for Charity’s bash, featuring musicians Sean Sonego and Amy Voyer. Tickets are $25, with all proceeds donated to Edmonton charities for at-risk youth like YESS and iHuman. (7:30pm, Starlite Room, 10030 102 St., starliteroom.ca)
