Don’t miss the New Year’s Eve fireworks in Seattle!
Hoping to make epic plans for New Year’s Eve in Seattle? You can see Seattle’s New Year’s Eve fireworks above the Space Needle on Saturday, December 31, 2022. There are also free festivities planned at Seattle Center leading up to the fireworks show.
Read on for the details!
There is a new addition the New Year’s Eve fireworks in Seattle this year: a drone light show! There will be 200 drones flying north of the Space Needle as the clock strikes midnight. If you love the fireworks the most, however, don’t worry; the drones will be complementing the fireworks, not replacing them. According to the event page, the drones are “designed to integrate with the fireworks and light displays being launched and projected off of the Space Needle.”
Festivities start at 8:00 p.m. at Seattle Center. Live band Groove Nation will be playing at the Armory Stage at 8:00 p.m. Then at 10:00 p.m. you can enjoy a light show with a live DJ at the International Fountain.
The best place to see the fireworks will be the Seattle Center campus grounds, so be sure to make your way there by 11:30 p.m. You could also watch from other vantage points, such as across Lake Union at Gasworks Park or on a New Year’s Eve cruise on Elliott Bay.
Note that the Space Needle itself closes at 9:30 p.m. on December 31 (so no, you can’t watch the fireworks from the Space Needle observation deck).
If you can’t make it out in person, you can watch the fireworks by watching the show on KING 5 starting at 11:35pm PST and or by streaming it online at king5.com.
Have a great New Year’s Eve, Seattle!
