This New Year’s Eve, talented artists, musicians, DJs and dancers from the Ottawa region's diverse and vibrant arts and cultural scene, will converge for yet another special and unforgettable night. Aligned with the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, this event will feature four distinct spaces that aim to meet diverse tastes and desires.

This is a welcoming, inclusive, co-creative and conscious event, where all your needs for play and curiosity, grounding and rejuvenation, new connections and deep synchronicities can be met.

While we create the spaces, you make the magic so we encourage your self-expression through body art and masquerade attire!

Last NYE marked the creation of Manifesting Magic, and what a journey it has been for us all. We are grateful to all those who have taken this journey with us in this past year. As Manifesting Magic continues to evolve and grow, we can appreciate that the journey has only begun.

Manifesting Magic continues to remain a flexible, open, and evolving group dedicated to supporting Ottawa’s arts, music, and healing scene as it moves toward pushing its own potential and creativity. Our vision is to produce events and festivals that support the region’s musical, artistic, and alternative healing communities. by organizing events through a conscious design process that brings together talent from across a broad
spectrum of Ottawa’s arts and cultural spaces. In essence, we foster the cross-pollination of ideas, art-forms, styles, and energies.

While our events aim to feed the evolution of our region’s arts and cultural scene, we also strive to meet the diverse tastes, preferences, and desires that characterize the human experience. We consciously create spaces conducive to safety, relaxation, comfort and grounding. For those aspiring to more stimulating experiences, we create spaces conducive to movement, dance, and personal expression. For those
interested in socializing and meeting new people, we create spaces that promote authentic connections and spontaneous play.

Come join us to bid adieu to the old and ring in the new
at the party that everyone will be talking about again throughout the year!
