Update for 2020: most New Year’s events have been cancelled due to the pandemic. We still have several options listed below!

Colorado Springs has plenty of events to celebrate the New Year. People tend to have a wide range of preferences for how they like to ring in the New Year, and thankfully, Colorado Springs has something for everyone. There are events for families earlier in the day, options to get dressed up and dance into the night, or even opportunities to be active on New Year’s Day. No matter what your New Year’s celebration style, we have you covered with our list of Colorado Springs New Year’s Events. (We love a good list around here.

4. ADAMAN FIREWORKS, Dec 31: 9pm & 12:00am

This exclusive club hikes up Pikes Peak each year to set off fireworks at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Most years they fire 5 test shells at 9pm in honor of their 5 founding members. This year they will have a larger display at 9pm on par with their midnight who. If low key is your New Year’s Style, it’s always fun to stay home in PJ’s with family or friends, order takeout, play some board games, and then watch the fireworks from your porch. You can follow the club on Facebook beginning December 30 to see their climbing progress. More information about the club >> Adaman Club
