NYE BallRoomReady to say good-bye to 2017 and welcome 2018 in style? Join NDK on Dec. 31, 2017 as we count down to the Year of the Dog with costumes, photos by CG Photography, dancing, music by NDK Director DJ Jeremy, food, cash bar, games, Royalty, and friends!

The fun starts at 7 p.m., Dec. 31, 2017, and programming ends around 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2018. (After the countdown ends, it’s up to DJ Jeremy to decide how long to keep the party going!)

We’ll be closing the registration desk at 10:00 p.m., after which time only pre-registered attendees will be allowed in.

NDK NYE is one of the few, if not only, New Year’s events in the Denver Metro area to welcome all ages. We want to make sure everyone has a great time, so please review our policies prior to NYE.


Online pre-registration will open after NDK and go to Dec. 30. Register on-site for $20, cash and credit cards accepted.
