Come get wild at the New Year’s Eve Party of the Year, voted Hawaii’s #1 biggest and best New Year’s Eve party for the last two years in a row! Ring in the New Year with eight areas of amazing entertainment, plus a fireworks show from 9 p.m. every hour until the clock strikes midnight, all at Kaka‘ako Waterfront Park starting at 6 p.m. on December 31, New Year’s Eve.

With eight different areas offering activities, from food to a Ferris wheel to fire dancers, there will be something exciting for everyone. In Area 1, find over 30 of your favorite Eat the Street food vendors and food trucks. Groove to the music in Area 2, with a beer garden, live entertainment, DJs, fire dancers and more, then catch a live, all-ages concert by local reggae artist Fiji and special guests, celebrating his CD release party and 20th anniversary with the crowd in Area 3!


Get your hands in the air in Area 4, with Vegas-style mash-ups, hip-hop and Top 40 and music videos on a giant screen. Marvel at the Lazerworks in Area 5, with luminous light shows, DJs playing Electronic Dance Music and national acts to be announced! Area 6 offers a special treat for all ages: The EK Fernandez Ferris wheel, with a fantastic view of the ocean and all the festivities. Last but not least, Areas 7 and 8 are reserved for our exclusive VIPs, with an elevated stage and private party cabanas.

As if that wasn’t enough, this is the ONLY place in Hawaii where you’ll see the Red Bull Air Force dive out of the sky to land in the middle of the party. The Party of the Year also doubles as the Official Vans Triple Crown Wrap-up Party, where attendees can meet and party with pro surfers.

Partygoers age 21 and older can upgrade to a VIP experience; choose between the Party Platform in Area 7 – elevated and smack-dab in the middle, with a sweet view of all the stages – or for a truly exclusive experience, choose the Concert Cabana in Area 8, a section reserved just for you and your friends.

This is an all ages event; children 10 & under get in for free! General Admission is $25 and includes access to all stages. VIP for 21 & over is $75.

Presale tickets are available online at and at all Ticketmaster outlets, including all area WalMarts, Blaisdell Box Office and military outlets. To charge tickets by phone, call (800) 745-3000.
