In the U.S. the big event is the New Year's Eve bash in Time Square, NYC. Also, on New Years Day, there are parades in some of the cities. And in Philadelphia, is the Mummer's parade - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mummers_Parade. As you'll see when following the link, there is certainly much to accomplish the span b/t parades for preparation. Saving Changes...
In Sydney, the New Year fire works celebration is the major event that takes a lot of planning and co-ordination between a number of entities. These include (but not limited) to the City of Sydney Council, Police and Emergency Services, Transport for New South Wales including Transport Management Centre, Public Transport (trains, buses, ferries and light rail), taxis, NSW Roads and Maritime Services and the media; in addition to businesses. A quick look at the website would provide an idea https://www.sydneynewyearseve.com Here is also a link to the 12:00 fire works. Happy New Year! https://youtu.be/KKtyz6F8oIw
For example, the annual New Year's Eve ball drop in New York City could be considered an operational process as the degree of uncertainty should have dropped after the first dozen or so times they've done it. Yes, every year they might tweak a variable here or there, but they are still following a very well established "playbook".

You are right some are a repeat with a twist from year to year. Some are a new team, a full rework, since not much from previous year can be reuse.
There are many small events, I can think of one that uses to bee real big call "Bye Bye 201x" that celebrated is 50th episode this year. It is a review of the year with many sketches.
Always a few months in preparation. The concept may be getting old, but it is still one most don't skip, I don't watch it live.
there is a review show from Toronto, must be some other events. Saving Changes...
