Denver celebrates new year's eve in fine style, and we expect them to be welcoming 2019 with the return of their fabulous new year party on the 16th Street Mall, with 2 fireworks shows, the first at 9pm then another at midnight, along with live music and entertainment throughout the evening - we will confirm once this is announced for sure.
What makes the NYE party in Denver even better is that this is a free event, organised by the Downtown Denver Partnership, and represents a great opportunity for the city's citizens to come together for a fantastic new year celebration.
The biggest party in Denver is of course the party on the 16th Street Mall which attracts a crowd of up to 100,000 so if this is where you're heading for your new year celebration then we recommend you allow yourself plenty time to get there good and early and secure a decent vantage point!
This new year also sees the return of the huge Decadence NYE party at the Colorado Convention Center. This dance and live music event takes place over 2 nights on the 30th and 31st December.
Tickets will sell out quickly, so act fast to secure your spot - they will be available online here.
Live music is always a big feature of new year's eve in Denver and The Fillmore will be guaranteed to be leading the way with top live performers.
Last new years they had Umphrey's McGee playing live, we'll bring you this year's act as soon as it's announced.
Another large and very popular party is City NYE, which takes place at McNichols Civic Center Building and offers an evening of great entertainment including three floors of DJs, live music, art installations and open bars.

Another event worth looking out for this new year is the NYE Black Tie Party at the historic Sherman Street Event Center, featuring live bands, DJs, casino games and a photo booth.

For those who prefer to get active on new year's eve, maybe just in preparation for a night of over-indulgence, the Resolution Run 5k race returns to Washington Park, starting at 5pm.
Throughout the festive season there is also an ice rink in Denver, sponsored by SouthWest airlines and set up at 16th and Arapahoe in the downtown area. Skating is free but if you need to hire skates they're available for only $2.
There isn't much in the way of TV coverage, but there are a few decent streaming webcam options including live cam views of downtown Denver, well positioned for a front row view of the fireworks:
Denver has a wide range of accommodation to suit most budgets, and many are very well located for the new years parties and entertainment, with several hotels also hosting their own new year parties if you want to be able to avoid having to head out in the cold weather!
We recommend you check the party details with the venue in advance before booking, and also see what packages are available over the festive months.
You can check out availability and make your online reservations for local hotels here.
