FAQs


Where are the box offices?


Box offices are located at the Salt Palace in the south foyer (indoors, corner of West Temple and 200 South) and indoors at 100 South and West Temple. Both box offices open at 5:00 pm all three days of EVE.

The Visit Salt Lake Visitor’s Center (located at 90 S. West Temple) will also be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Dec 29, 30 and 31 to handle daytime box office needs.


Is EVE for all ages?


Yes! Activities spread over three days and nights means there’s something for every age and every schedule. Families can celebrate together with interactive art exhibits, hands-on learning at Discovery Gateway, an indoor Bounce Town, and much more.  Singles and friends can enjoy drinks, concerts, art exhibits, and more, or just take in the scene at Utah’s biggest three-day party.

Is alcohol available at EVE?


Yes. For those 21 and over beer and wine are available at EVE’s home base, the Salt Palace. High point beer is also available at the Hop Rising Lounge  in the Salt Palace. Plus, there are several restaurants and bars near the Salt Palace, at The Gateway and between each of the EVE venues where you can pop in for a round.

EVE goers can also experience the New Year’s EVE Bash, a VIP party at UMOCA.


What is the VIP Experience?


The VIP Experience is the VIP New Year’s EVE Bash at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. This immersive 21-and-older experience features locally made Epic beer, Jack Rabbit Gin, Vida Tequila, and bites and apps, all in a setting of contemporary art.

From 8:00 pm to 1:00 am, expect random performances, private music sets from EVE headliners, and a midnight champagne toast. Tickets are $100 and include a 3-day pass to EVE Winter Fest, four drink coupons, a midnight champagne toast, food and entertainment, plus VIP access to The Leonardo and complimentary ice skating at the Gallivan Center.


Will there be fireworks this year?


Based on a petition after last year’s EVE, we’ve found a clean air alternative to fireworks: the largest disco ball in the US. Suspended over and illuminating downtown, this art installation will feature an amazing light show to ring in the New Year.

This could be a new way to brighten up the night when the clock strikes midnight, while avoiding the negative impacts fireworks have on our air. Any city can shoot fireworks into the night sky and call it a celebration—we’re ready to do something much more amazing!

We’re hosting a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to bring this light show and art installation to Utah, and you can help. Learn how >
