Plan Your Visit

As Winterfest presented by Symetra comes to an end, celebrate our final event on New Year’s Eve! Seattle Center is the place to be for our free New Year’s Eve Celebration. Enjoy live entertainment and joyful festivities across our grounds.

• Pop by the Armory between 8pm and midnight and hear the soulful sounds of premier Northwest band Groove Nation.

• At 10pm, head out to International Fountain for a Fountain of Light show featuring DJ Supreme La Rock.

Just before midnight, find your spot outside to view T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle, the Space Needle’s drone and pyrotechnic extravaganza!

• The expanded 16-minute show will begin seven minutes before midnight with a performance by 500 drones leading to the largest structurally launched firework show in North America.

• For the first time ever, Portland and Spokane will join the countdown to 2024. Viewers at home can tune-in to the live one-hour broadcast starting at 11:30PM on KING 5 in Seattle, KGW 8 in Portland, and KREM 2 in Spokane.

• Revelers at Seattle Center will be able to watch the Space Needle become a canvas for impressive 10-minute light shows happening at 10:00PM, 10:30PM, 11:00PM and 11:30PM.

This is the city’s place to be on New Year’s Eve!
