Be aware that between 8p.m. and 1a.m. RTD Light Rail Trains will not run and mall ride shuttles will temporarily stop during both fireworks shows.
Relive the roaring 20’s at the 16th Annual White Rose Gala event at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.

If you’re more of a football fan, you’re in luck.
You can watch the Denver Broncos play the Kansas City Chiefs at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Start your New Year’s Eve celebrations early with kickoff at 2:25 p.m. The game will be over early enough for you to take in some of the other New Year’s Eve celebrations Denver has to offer.
Take a trip to Austria with the Colorado Symphony this New Year’s Eve at the Boettcher Concert Hall in the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
Enjoy an evening of polkas, waltzes, and marches conducted by Music Director Brett Mitchell.
