Each year Whistler fills up with NYE celebrators of all ages for one of Canada’s best New Year’s Eve celebrations! At Adara Hotel Whistler, we are located smack dab in the middle of Whistler Village and all of the NYE festivities, and know the top ways to ring in the new year while in Whistler. Here we have comprised an ‘informal’ guide on to how to spend New Years 2017. Whether you are looking to ring in the new year with family, dance to the wee hours of the morning or indulge your senses with one of Whistler’s best dining experiences, there truly is something for everyone.
This family friendly event is the ultimate way to spend NYE with children, or for those looking for an affordable and fun way to welcome in the year to come. This year there will be two ticketed venues featuring entertainment, activities and performances for all ages. The Whistler Conference Centre and The Arts Centre will host arts, crafts, entertainment, musical performances and a teen dance. There will also be free entertainment in Skiers Plaza featuring athletes starring in the Fire and Ice show, an amazing performance where athletes flip, twirl and jump through blazing rings of fire with a backdrop of Whistler Blackcomb. The Fire and Ice show will end with a spectacular fireworks display when the clock strikes midnight.
The Bearfoot Bistro is presenting a five course dining extravaganza followed by a masquerade party which will last until the wee hours of the morning. The Bearfoot Bistro is one of Whistler’s finest restaurants while adding an element of fun and excitement with their extensive wine cellar where guests can saber a bottle of champagne plus their famous Ketel One Ice Room, the world’ coldest vodka tasting room. On New Years Eve the Bearfoot Bistro will be putting on a five-course seafood and wild game menu with a DJ, dancing and masquerade fun. This hot ticket will likely sell out so make sure to book in advance!
Let your inner rock star shine at Buffalo Bill’s NYE pop stars and rock legends party. Buffalo Bills is a Whistler institution and is the preeminent nightclub venue for those in their 30’s and 40’s. Listen to the beats of Whistler’s top DJ, have a complimentary glass of champagne at midnight and win a bottle of Dom Perignon for the best dressed pop star or rock legend!
Think gold, glitter and fireworks in Whistler’s most extravagant NYE party located right in Skiers Plaza. The Longhorn is Whistler’s best seat to the Fire and Ice Show and the midnight fireworks display. Dress code is your most ‘sparkly’ attire as you sip champagne while soaking in the unique new year atmosphere of Whistler Village.
Can’t decide where to go NYE, why not hop on Whistler’s club crawl and sample some of the best NYE parties in town?
