SALT LAKE CITY — Downtown is set to ring in the new year with another EVE celebration, a three-day extravaganza with both indoor and outdoor activities around the city.

About 40,000 are expected to join in the festivities, which will follow the theme "Light, Art & Sound."

The five-year anniversary of Salt Lake City's New Year's celebration will bring back past years' greatest hits and welcome new partners Utah Jazz and Salt Lake Comic Con, the Downtown Alliance announced Monday.

EVE, which runs Dec. 29–31, offers something for all ages, organizers said. An EVE wristband — $15 for ages 10 and up, $5 for ages 3–9 — provides access to events at the Salt Palace Convention Center and other venues in the city.

People can enjoy concerts at Temple Square, short films at Broadway Centre Cinemas, shows at Off Broadway Theatre, a 35th anniversary retrospective exhibit at Discovery Gateway Museum, shows at the Clark Planetarium and exhibits at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.

EVE information
  • Dec. 29 — 31
  • Wristband: 
    $15, ages 10 and up 
    $5, ages 3–9
  • More info: eveslc.com.

"There are three nights, the ticket is $15, but there are a thousand ways to celebrate in Utah's capital city, and we're excited to welcome people from across the region back to downtown Salt Lake City for this event," said Jason Mathis, executive director of the Downtown Alliance.

The wristband also includes free tickets to the Dec. 30 Jazz game against the Charlotte Bobcats, while supplies last. Tickets for that Jazz game will also work as an EVE pass.

An extra $15 will get pass-holders into The Leonardo at a discount to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit.

"Our long-term goal with EVE is to create a national celebration, a national festival, that attracts skiers to our community to stay downtown that week between Christmas and New Year's," Mathis said.

Starting at 6 p.m. each day, the hub of the celebration will be the Salt Palace Convention Center, where there will be live music and DJs on stages both inside and outside, as well as the "StageAblaze" fire spectacular.

Provo-based band Beyond 5 and Los Angeles–based Smallpools will headline the events Dec. 30 and Dec. 31, respectively.

"There are so many extraordinary experiences and opportunities to connect with your community at EVE, whether it's visual art, whether it is performance art, whether you are the art," Mathis said. "You'll definitely have this great community experience."

Mathis said "Eve Central" at the Salt Palace Convention Center will also have a revival of the BounceTown and BallRoom — filled with 2,014 beach balls, lasers, lighting and music.

On Dec. 30, Salt Lake Comic Con will help put on a costume contest in the ballroom of the Salt Palace.

"The EVE headquarters will be open at 6 p.m. every night, but our partner venues are open during their regular hours. … They'll be running their programming as early as 10 a.m.," said Kim Angeli, special events director for the Downtown Alliance.

The celebration will culminate in a fireworks show on New Year's Eve when the clock ticks down to 2014.

"It seems like there are more things to do than ever with the EVE pass," Angeli said. "What we have to offer is really exciting to me. It really is everything from the films to the dance parties, so I think that there's something to appeal to everyone."
