Stonehaven Fireballs 2024

Stonehaven Fireballs

The Fireball Ceremony is Stonehaven’s unique way to welcome in the New Year and greet friends and neighbours. As the midnight chimes ring out on December 31st, approximately 40 men and women parade up and down the High Street swinging fiercely flaming balls around their heads.

Where?

People start to gather in the High Street from 10.00pm onwards on December 31st. The Stonehaven fireball festival starts at midnight, and lasts for approximately 20 minutes.

We have to close access to the High Street when we reach capacity. This can happen any time after 11.00pm, so don’t leave it too late or you may be disappointed.

It is followed immediately afterwards by a fireworks display.

Tickets
