Since 2001. Looking for a fun, safe, free, family-friendly way to ring in the new year? Well, then Downtown Denver is the place to celebrate. Now in its 16th year, the tradition continues with two fireworks shows that light up the skies and make the skyscrapers sparkle. The first, at 9pm, is great for you early-to-bed folks. (Us, too!) And then there’s midnight for the night owls and night Broncos. Both dazzling shows are identical and synchronized to music from DJs along the 16th Street Mall. The fireworks are presented by the Downtown Denver Partnership and co-sponsored by VISIT DENVER and the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District. Please note, between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m., RTD Light Rail trains will not cross the 16th Street Mall and mall ride shuttles will stop temporarily during the two fireworks shows.
