JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —Another year has come and gone. Doesn’t time fly?
As we prepare to enter the new year, there are dozens of celebrations planned all around the First Coast. Firework displays, parties and much more will be happening this weekend.
Here’s a list of where you can celebrate the new year in style.
- New Year’s Eve Fireworks by Coggin Chevrolet at the Avenues
- Where: Along the St. Johns River in Downtown Jacksonville
Say goodbye to 2022 and ring in the New Year with a spectacular fireworks display over the St. Johns River. Make your way down to the waterfront with friends or family before midnight to snag a great seat for the festivities. Fireworks will begin exactly at midnight. This year fireworks will be launched from a barge on the St. Johns River between the Hyatt and DoubleTree hotels and high above the St. Johns River from the Acosta Bridge.
These locations are able to be viewed from both the North and South banks in Downtown Jacksonville in addition to viewing from Brooklyn and under the Fuller Warren Bridge where the Riverside Arts Market is held. The fireworks show will begin at midnight to ring in 2023.
- Fernandina Beach NYE fireworks
- Downtown Fernandina Beach
On NYE in Downtown Fernandina Beach there will be a night of family friendly fun, food vendors, party hats and fireworks!

Enjoy live music by LPT in the Parlor, jams by DJ Jenn in the front! Food by Hard Pressed Burgers to keep you going into the night and a complimentary champagne toast at midnight! Space is limited!
