Our Guide to New Year’s in Palm Springs

While the rest of the country suffers in the midst of winter in the days and hours leading up to New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, our sunny city of Palm Springs and the surrounding Coachella Valley region enjoys mild temperatures, fantastic outdoor activities, and some of the hottest New Year’s events in the southwest. Read on below for more details on how you can plan an incredible Palm Springs New Years Eve vacation!

Celebrate New Year’s in the Desert of Palm Springs

While we would encourage anyone to visit Palm Springs during any season, there’s something to be said for escaping to the warmth and sunshine of the desert during the depths of winter. In Palm Springs and its neighboring cities, we enjoy all of the winter holiday festivities without any of the harsh weather that might put a damper on your New Year’s Eve celebrations back home.

Palm Springs New Years Events and Activities

Throughout Greater Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley, you and your guests will find that there are a variety of fantastic Palm Springs New Years Eve activities and events going on, in venues ranging from restaurants and zoos to casinos and nightclubs.

Send off the old year and ring in the new with a decadent dinner at restaurants like Vicky’s of Santa Fe, Acqua California Bistro, Bernie’s Lounge and Supper Club, and the restaurants at Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa or Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa.

For a family friendly evening of New Year’s fun, you’ll want to check out the Mildly Wild New Year’s Eve Party at The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, where you can pay to enjoy a themed party with animal encounters, dinner, dancing, and more from 6pm-10pm.

If you’re more interested in “adults only” fun, there are plenty of incredible parties, drag shows, music, and dancing at spots like Agua Caliente Casino, the Kimpton Rowan Hotel, The Saguaro, Draughtsman, Hotel Zoso, and others.

One thing to keep in mind: Most of these restaurants and venues will require advanced reservations in order to secure your spot for NYE, so plan ahead!
