If you haven’t yet made New Year’s plans, consider one of the following Colorado traditions. These events have been going on for years, making them bona fide, awesome experiences.

Yonder in Boulder
Yonder Mountain String Band has played the Boulder Theater on New Year’s Eve for years. It’s their home town after all. Here, you’ll meet bluegrass lovers who’ve attended the show every year. This is always a packed house filled with incredible vibes and stellar tunes.

Dinner on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad
The railroad was largely responsible for Colorado’s growth during the mining days, making it a significant piece of the state’s history. The railway tradition carries on aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad in Cañon City, where the New Year’s Eve Dinner Train is one of the most unique ways to celebrate the new year.

Torchlight Parade at Copper Mountain
Copper Mountain’s New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade & Fireworks is the perfect family celebration with a kid’s glowstick pageant followed by a torchlight parade down the mountain, a rail jam under the lights, and a mountain-side fireworks display.

Ice Skating at Evergreen Lake
For more than 20 years, locals and visitors have ascended upon Evergreen Lake to skate under the stars. While on the ice, skaters also enjoy a firework display at 8 pm and midnight.
