Aspen is famous for its parties, and New Years Eve is one of the biggest!
New Year’s Eve Fireworks in Aspen
Welcome the new year with a literal blast by viewing the impressive New Year’s Eve fireworks over Aspen Mountain. The first show is at 8 p.m., and the second is at midnight. Gather round with locals and visitors of all ages for a free event in Wagner Park with a roaring bonfire and DJ. Children will enjoy the playground located adjacent to the park.
Find multiple premium open bars and exclusive parties to start the year off in style. Ring in the new year at The Little Nell New Year’s Eve Dom Pérignon party, featuring an open bar and special musical act performances—yes, multiple—in three of the hotel’s event spaces. Or celebrate at the Limelight Hotel New Year’s Eve bash! They are offering tarot and palm readings, a live DJ, an oxygen lounge and Veuve Clicquot & Belvedere as part of the open bar.
Dance the night away at Bootsy Bellows for a New Year’s Eve with visiting DJs and light appetizers. In case you’re planning on rubbing elbows at a venue like the member’s only Caribou Club, make sure to plan ahead since tickets for some of these events will go fast!
Not willing to commit? Enjoy low-key celebrations at the downstairs bar Hooch, gastropub Aspen Public House, or historic watering hole Red Onion. Discover lively events and excellent people watching by bar hopping across the five-block core of Aspen!
