Denver New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Concerts, Parties, Hotels, Restaurants

Denver, Colorado, CO, 31 December 2014, Midnight

I'm a big fan of wintry conditions over the holiday period, I think that when celebrating Christmas and new year then it very much adds to the atmosphere and sense of occasion if there's a chill in the air and snow on the ground, all the better to reflect the seasonal lights, and in new year's eve's case, the fireworks.

This is why Denver appeals so much as an NYE destination - you're pretty much guaranteed snowy weather and the fact they hold a big public party in the downtown area each year only adds to the appeal, so for the traditional, picture postcard style new year party Denver make sit very much onto the bucket list.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

The biggest party is in Downtown Denver, where the annual fireworks displays take place. The event is part of a larger event on the 16th Street Mall which continues throughout the evening and includes food and drink stalls plus live music and entertainment. Crowds of up to 100,000 are expected on the mall, so make sure you allow yourself plenty time to get there and secure a decent vantage point!

Sponsored for 2015 by Visit Denver and the appropriately titled Downtown Denver Business Improvement District there are 2 shows, a family focused event at 9pm then the main midnight fireworks. Best viewing points are basically anywhere along the 16th Street Mall. The exact launch points are undisclosed to you just have to position yourself as best you can and hope you chose a good spot!

One of the biggest parties in Denver this year is the NYE 2015 Black Tie Party at the Sherman Street Event Center, featuring top live DJs, casino games and a confetti blast at midnight. VIP options also provide a free bar and access to the Grand Ballroom and VIP Mezzanine. Tickets are available online here.

If you would like to attend a new year party that also benefits a good cause then I recommend the Masquerade Ball and Casino Night at the Denver Marriott South Park Meadows, with old school, r&b, soul, & top 40 music in an event that aims to support local youth in sports. More details and tickets available here.

This year also sees the return of the New Year’s Eve Block Party 2015, taking pace at at the city's Crowne Plaza Hotel. This event has a futuristic theme and includes live DJs and a balloon drop and confetti blast at midnight, with further surprises also promised. Ticket details here.

Away from the main events, one of the city's most iconic new years parties is the Denver NYE Penthouse Party, held over the entire 37th and 38th floors of the Pinnacle Club at the Grand Hyatt and including premium bar, high end catered buffet and complimentary champagne for the toast at midnight. The elevated location also means excellent views of the fireworks. Entertainment this year is provided by DJ Topshelf, DJ Bran and Eric Lane Music.

Other big parties include New Year's Eve at Diamond Cabaret with their somewhat risque 14th Annual Victorian Fetish Ball and the 12th Annual White Rose Charity Gala at the Hyatt Regency, this year with a Great Gatsby Roaring 20's theme. There are further details and tickets available for all of these events here.

There will also be a big event at the Colorado Convention centre, where the DECADENCE NYE event will be taking place over 2 nights on the 30th and 31st December, featuring headline acts Bassnectar, Dada Life, Datsik, 12th Planet, Pretty Lights and Above & Beyond. Another live music option sees Umphrey's McGee playing live at the Fillmore Auditorium while the Oh Hellos are at the Ogden Theater.

R&B Superstar Ginuwine adds to an impressive new year Denver lineup, playuing live at the City Hall Amphitheatre, and event that also features a balloon drop and champagen at midnight. Tickets available here.

The Wu Tang Clan are also coming to Denver this new year, performing live at the Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom in an event that has been dubbed Wu Years Eve! They will also be supported by Method Man, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah in what promises to be an epic evening. Get your tickets online here.

Live music fans who don't mind heading a little further afiled might want to head out to nearby Aspen, where The Flaming Lips will be playing in the new year at famous Aspen rock club the Belly Up, supported by Midlake. This is a small venue, so if you want to go get your tickets asap.

For those of a more cultural bent, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra will be performing A Night in Vienna at the Boettcher Concert Hall. The show gets underway at 6.30pm and is schedules to make sure it's finished in time for you to get out and watch the fireworks.

If you just fancy a quieter evening in a restaurant before perhaps wandering downtown to watch the fireworks then Denver has plenty of culinary options too. Top rated eateries include Vesta Dipping Grill, Fruition, Rioja, Snooze and the Palace Arms. Find the full range of options here.
