New Years Eve 2019 – the end of another decade!



It is time to celebrate! Afterall, it is the end of a decade and there are many great things to do in Downtown Brockville, where there is something exciting for everyone – Really!

28th Annual New Year’s Eve Concerts in Historic Downtown Churches:

Our longest standing tradition starts at 6:00 PM, a historic church concert tour, beginning at your choice of First Baptist Church or St Lawrence Anglican Church, a new act begins hourly and 15 minutes between allows for travel time through the rotation of 6 churches (2-3 venues hosting simultaneously). See program to the right.

Courtesy of Brockville New Year’s Eve Church Concerts we have Matthew O'Halloran pictured below at 2018’s New Year's Eve concerts, his quintet will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of 1959 during their set at this year’s event. 1959 is one of the most important years in jazz history, so they will be performing songs from significant albums such as "Kind of Blue", "Moanin'" and "Time Out" playing at 8pm at the St. Lawrence Anglican Church.
