Visitor Information

The Stonehaven Fireballs ceremony and the fireworks which follow immediately after it are an open spectator event and no tickets are required.  Visitors are advised to arrive early to get parked and enter the arena in case we reach maximum capacity. Although there is no entry fee, donations are most welcome to help with the annual running costs of staging this event.

The Fireballs start at midnight but people start to arrive from around 10.30, with crowds really gathering from 11.00.  In recent years we have reached capacity ataround 11.30 and have unfortuately had to turn people away, so please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.

Allow extra time if you are taking a car, as parking can become a problem. There are no special parking arrangements, just park on the streets in the main town area. Normal parking restrictions apply.
