Happy New Year - Parties to Bring in 2022
New Year in Calgary - Say Good-Bye to 2021
Can you believe that 2021 is wrapping up so soon? Time flies! This year we saw some better moments with the COVID vaccination drives allowing us to go back to the pre-pandemic life to some degree. Restaurants, malls, parks, movie theatres, etc., opened up, and we got to spend time with our friends and family. Here’s hoping for an even better 2022. If you reside in Calgary, here are a few new year’s parties that you absolutely must not miss to kickstart 2022 in the best possible way.
A Luminous New Year’s Eve
Luminous Voices is reviving its annual New Year’s Eve tradition once again this year at the Bella Concert Hall stage in Calgary. This is what they are saying about their event: “Weaving together unaccompanied choral gems spanning the centuries, you will hear our voices echo through the hall allowing space and time for reflection, celebration, and renewal.” Sounds beautiful, doesn’t it? Book your tickets online right away!
The price ranges from $34.35 to $45.10. All you have to do is reach Bella Concert Hall, Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts, Mount Royal University (18 Mount Royal Circle SW, Calgary) on Friday, December 31, 2021, at 8:00 pm, and have the New Year’s Eve of a lifetime. Also, public transport is easily accessible, so you don’t have to worry about that either.
80s Dance Party
Okay, yes, we are stepping into a new year, but don’t we want to reminisce about the past sometimes? Well, here’s your chance to fly back to the 80s - or should I say, dance your way back to the 80s. Champagne and party favors will be available for the special Midnight. It will basically be an NYE Edition Glow Party in the Sundance Ballroom. Silly Wrabbit will be playing the classic 80’s Hits with DJ and video wall.
Plus, if you’re wearing the best Glow costume, you’ll also be winning a prize. So, if you’re 18 or over, book your tickets for only $40.06, reach Sundance Ballroom (Deerfoot Inn & Casino – 1000, 11500 – 35 Street SE, Calgary), and have the time of your life on Friday, December 31, 2021, from 9 PM to 2 AM. It’s time to party like it’s 1989!
Christmas Lights at Spruce Meadows
We’ve talked about partying, but how about spending a cozy and wholesome evening with your loved ones? Spruce Meadows, Calgary invites your entire family (with people of all age groups) to enjoy the Christmas Lights.
You can bring along your friends and Christmas guests too. It’s open to everyone. Let’s not miss out on the best part - it is absolutely free of cost! What more can we ask for, right?
Also, it runs from December 10, 2021, to January 2, 2022 - basically the entire holiday season - so there’s no rush. You can show up at Spruce Meadows (18011 Spruce Meadows Way SW, Calgary) whenever you like. But remember, December 25 is excluded so you can spend a cozy and intimate Christmas with your loved ones at home.
New Year’s Eve Dinner and Dance
Prairie Dog invites you to spend New Year’s Eve in their style. They say, “2021 was well… let’s ring in 2022 with beer, BBQ, and friends!” That sounds like a convincing invitation. Your evening will begin with a welcome drink before you are served a deliciously curated BBQ buffet dinner of local ingredients smoked in Clifford Canada's largest BBQ pit.
Don’t worry, vegetarian options are included, too. You will also have the chance to capture your amazing memories in their photo booth while enjoying beer and beverages from their bar. Then, you can just dance the night away with music from their live DJ.
If all the dancing and fun gets you hungry, their late-night poutine and pretzel bar will be available for you. All you need to do is reach 105d 58 Avenue Southeast Calgary and enjoy from Friday, 31 Dec 2021, 6:00 PM to Saturday, 1 Jan 2022, 1:30 AM MST.
