What: Christmas may be over but there's still plenty of time to party at one of Canada's biggest New Year's Eve celebrations. There's a free-entry, family-friendly NYE street party on and around downtown's Jack Poole Plaza, where you can keep warm by making friends with up to 100,000 fellow revellers. But if you fancy staying toasty while you show off your sparkly party outfit to full effect, book a ticket for the indoor festivities at the adjoining Vancouver Convention Centre West. Tickets include on-stage live music, DJs and surprise guests throughout the evening as well as a host of interactive shenanigans, art installations and bar access––plus indoor viewing of the spectacular midnight countdown fireworks.
When: December 31 (indoor party starts at 7pm)
Where: Canada Place Way, downtown Vancouver
Cost: Indoor party tickets from $59 (plus taxes and fees); accompanied children aged 7 and under are free
