Whistler Presents: New Years Eve

With basically every bar in town offering a place for adults to indulgence in celebrations, there are not quite as many options for families looking to celebrate the new year. That’s why the Resort Municipality of Whistler is once again hosting this family-friendly event, taking place on Dec 31. This alcohol-free celebration features arts and crafts for children as well as an early countdown so young ones can be tucked-in early. Also featured is a teen dance for 13 - 17 year olds at the Whistler Conference Centre. This fun all finishes with a midnight firework show at Skier’s Plaza!

Fire & Ice NYE Show

Every Sunday night during winter see a spectacular display of ski and snowboard skill at the legendary Fire & Ice Show in the Whistler Skier's Plaza. Whistler's best skiers and riders jump and flip through a blazing ring of fire accompanied by fire spinners, a DJ and fireworks display. An electrifying evening of free, live entertainment to watch with family and friends.


And luckily for us, on New Year’s Eve, from 11:30 to midnight, the Fire & Ice Show will be happening. Come out and watch the athletes perform and then enjoy a fireworks show at midnight. It wouldn't be a New Year without a dazzling display of lights and sounds over snow! Fireworks are best viewed from Skier's Plaza located at the base of Whistler Mountain.




New Year’s Eve Parties

Whistler is full of nightlife; clubs, pubs, lounges, and bars with almost every one having a celebration of their own. If you haven’t experienced a ‘Whistler-style’ New Year’s Eve, we suggest you try it. It’s not for everybody but it’s definitely worth the experience -- Picture a movie-esque celebration complete with the glamorous setting, beautiful people, and champagne bottles galore. 

While you can basically head to the village and pick whichever bar you please, waiting in the snow might not be your thing. Check out this list of Whistler bars throwing events and get your tickets ahead of time.
