Celebrations for the New Year in Peru

Festive Days

Date: Tuesday, 31 December 2019 - Wednesday, 01 January 2020

Just like in many other countries around the globe, the New Year’s Day is a public holiday in Peru and celebrated on January 1. Festivities to welcome the New Year start on the evening of December 31.

While many associate New Year’s Eve only with fireworks and heavy partying – and there is a lot of wild and crazy partying going on especially at the beaches from Mancora in the north, to Punta Hermosa, Asia and Paracas in the south and in larger cities such as Lima and Cusco, in Peru there are additionally countless local customs and traditions around to bid farewell to the old year and welcome the New Year.

January 1 is usually a quieter day in Peru. Quite a few attractions and museums are closed; while some shops and markets don’t open at all, others welcome customers only after around noon. People stay at home and relax, visit a park or have a walk in town.
