EVE, Salt Lake’s New Year’s Eve event, will be a gigantic street party downtown on Dec. 29, 30 and 31. Tens of thousands of people will gather for celebrations taking place on West Temple between 100 and 200 South and in the Calvin Rampton Salt Palace Convention Center. There will be plenty of places to chill down and warm up and a thousand ways to celebrate. Hours are 6-10 p.m. on the 29th and 30th and 6 p.m.-midnight on the 31st.

Provo City offers First Night and this website has details. Below is an excerpt.

Come and celebrate this New Year's Eve at the Provo Towne Centre. First Night activities will include First Night Star Singing Competition, live bands, Big Band Dance, Top 40's Dance, food court, inflatable games, crafts, professional face painters, games, balloon artists, performers, karaoke, entertainment and fireworks.

There will be activities in many Utah communities and visitors are always welcome.

Our ski resorts will also offer celebrations and special events. This Salt Lake Tribune article provides details. Below are excerpts.

While New Year’s Eve parties tend to have a reputation for being wild, events at Utah’s ski resorts don’t often live up to that reputation.

In fact, they tend to be earlier in the evening, family-oriented and can even occur a night early on Dec. 30.

“A lot of spectators and guests enjoy watching the torchlight parades,” said Jessica Kunzer of Ski Utah. “They are visually stunning. We have holiday visitors that come out between Dec. 26 and Jan. 2 and it’s fun for them to participate as well. You get a good mix of locals and visitors staying at the resorts.”
