The options are endless with lots of variety from a family event, to a sober dance, to live comedy and even a casino themed party!
We recommend calling ahead to make reservations or purchase your tix in advance for all events in order to avoid disappointment. Also, plan a safe ride home either via transit (which is free on New Year's Eve!) or if you're stuck you can call Operation Red Nose to get you and your vehicle home safe.
A great option for kids is the Boston Pizza party - every hour on the hour between 5pm and 9pm they hold a ball drop like it's midnight hosted by their mascot Lionel!
Looking for a sober affair? Anvil Centre will host Rejuvenate NYE - a fundraiser for Recovery Day BC
Take a cruise on the Fraser River with Paddlewheeler Riverboat Tours! Their 19+ only NYE cruise features a DJ, champagne and party favours at midnight plus a great selection of hors d’ oeuvres.
The Heritage Grill will feature live music with The Colorifics, Kelly O'Bryans has live music too with Quickness, Hops Pub is hosting a casino themed party, and Lafflines has an amazing comedy show headlined by Dave Nystrom and Christina.
We hope you enjoy ringing in the New Year in Downtown New West! We wish you all the best for 2019!
