It seems like 2018 happened in the blink of an eye, and very soon, we’ll be starting new chapters of our lives. It’ll be a time of changes, new plans, new ventures and ever-evolving dreams. However, before we get into all that, let’s just focus on ending the year with a bang at some of Vancouver’s most anticipated events. From elegant dinners and family-friendly events to Vancouver’s biggest ever NYE bash, we’ve got you covered with our suggestions just down below:
Concord’s New Year’s Eve
This epic Vancouver event is suitable for all ages and inclinations. In fact, there’s so much to explore and enjoy here that you’ll probably want to be a little more prepared before heading over. The event is completely F.O.C. (yay!), and you can look forward to tons of live music and entertainment. There will be two fireworks shows, one a little earlier at 9 p.m. and the traditional one at midnight, so do head on over for a truly smashing year end celebration.
Venue: Canada Place, 999 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC V6C 3T4
Time & Date: Starts at 7 p.m. (31 Dec, 2018). Fireworks at Midnight.

New Year’s Eve Vancouver Boat Cruise
2019 is just a couple of days away, and what better way to greet the new year than with a relaxing cruise.

Both cruise options are always sold out, so you’ll want to start booking your spot right away.

Fairmont Waterfront Gala Ball
Forget stuffy indoor celebrations and opt for Fairmont’s Waterfront Gala Ball instead. Canada Place will be celebrating magnificently, but it’ll also be crowded, so this is a good event to take in the midnight fireworks without constantly bumping shoulders. Here, you’ll get to enjoy two dancing rooms, a photo booth, three (yes, three) balloon drops and a champagne toast.
Venue: 900 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC V6C 3L5
Time & Date: (31 Dec, 2018)

Two seating times will be available, one at 5:30 and the other at 8 p.m., so do choose a dining time you would prefer. You’ll be welcomed with a classic Kir Royal cocktail, and dishes to look forward to including poached black cod, maple glazed duck breast, and porcini and chestnut soup.
