Phoenix, Arizona, AZ, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Phoenix celebrates the New Year's arrival in fine style each year with an eclectic mix of parties, events, cultural offerings and of course the obligatory fireworks displays. The locals like to think of this as the largest and best party in the whole of Arizona, while many visitors are attracted by the novelty of spending New Years Eve in the desert.

This isn't a location you're likely to chance upon by accident, existing as it does in such splendid isolation, but by all accounts it's well worth the trip, and is a venue we've had on the bucket list for quite a while - there's something I find particularly appealing about being in the desert during the winter, the contrast of colours and temperatures adding a unique aspect to the local new year celebrations.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


We haven't been able to find details on any official municipal fireworks in Phoenix, and don't be tempted to launch your own as they've been outlawed without a specific permit in Arizona since 2010! Your best chance of seeing some new year's eve pyrotechnics then will likely be at one of the big private hotel parties in the area.

The major hotels in Phoenix and nearby Scottsdale (technically a separate town, but part of the larger Phoenix metropolitan area) compete to host some pretty impressive new year parties. One such event is at the Hotel Valley Ho, where the NYE 2015 party includes buffet, premium bar, live music and a confetti explosion at midnight.

There is another big party at the Radisson and Fort McDowell Casino in Scottsdale, where their Grand Ballroom will be the scene for live music, Hors d'oeuvres, party favours and a champagne toast to greet the new year. Tickets are available here.

To make life easier for those heading into town, Valley Metro have announced they will be providing free light rail travel on new year's eve, from 7pm right up until 2am on new year's day.

For the more culturally inclined, the Phoenix Symphony will be holding their annual new year celebration - details and ticket info to follow.

For you new year dining options, then Phoenix has a huge range of possibilities, with literally thousands of restaurants to choose from. Popular choices include Wright's at the Biltmore, Beckett's Table, Portland's and Seasons 52. Vegans are advised to head for the Chakra 4 Vegetarian Restaurant. Check out the full range of Phoenix eateries here.
