I absolutely loved the Champagne Ball! There were super Good Vibes! It was amazing to see everyone dressed up anywhere from Super formal fancy too sexy…And everyone could feel comfortable. All different ages and styles of people.Jen O.
This was an AMAZING party- plenty of food, dessert, water, coffee, staff, security detail, dance floors, llamas (lol!), nice people, photo props, decorations, etc.!!! We went in a group of six, and it was the BOMB!!Kat N., CB27
Not only is this a great party, filled with dancing, food, drink, and fun, but it's also a safe one. I personally saw the host and the staff make sure that people were safe and free from harassment, which allowed me to relax and enjoy the party that much more.James W., CB26
Last year’s response was HUGE, so we moved the Singles Mixer Pre-Party to a bigger room and Discover Love Matches is adding more experts to their team to help our single guests find their midnight kiss (or maybe just a future date). Fun singles are invited to play ice-breaker games with fun prizes to make mingling easier. It’s also the best place to get the Champagne Ball Singles Beads, another way to catch the attention of others at the Ball who are open to meeting someone new. 💘
Guests will enjoy a variety of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, desserts and midnight pizza. We like to say the hors d’oeuvres buffet is enough to fill you up, but not enough slow you down. This will be served from 8:00 – 10:00 pm. The pizza is served just after midnight.
We’ll have 18 bars spread throughout the event to serve you.
Cocktails – $12.00
House and Northwest Wines – $10.00

The Champagne Ball proudly supports Raphael House Portland. The mission of Raphael House is to engage our entire community in non-violent living through advocacy, education, and community outreach, and by providing a safe haven from domestic violence.. Since opening their doors in 1977, they’ve offered uninterrupted access to emergency domestic violence shelter in a confidential location. Their programs continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of survivors and our community in creative and innovative ways. In 2006, their Prevention Education Program was established to address the underlying causes of intimate partner violence and create a healthier and safer community for everyone..
On December 31, 1990, Champagne Ball founder Mathew Weber set out to celebrate New Year’s Eve. He hit a local hot spot where he found himself disappointed from waiting in long lines and people treating New Year’s Eve like it was just another Saturday night.
After that experience, Weber decided to start a New Year’s Eve party with one goal in mind, to make New Year’s Eve special. Since then the Champagne Ball has helped nearly 40,000 people ring in the New Year in a fun and safe environment.
To keep the energy level high and amp up the fun the Champagne Ball always brings in the area’s top entertainment. The event features 18 bars because we want people out dancing, not standing in long lines. The party also includes a massive countdown with huge balloon drops, multiple confetti cannons, and a ton of party favors. Finally, we require guests to “dress to impress” because New Year’s Eve shouldn’t be treated like any other night.
We’re honored that people entrust us to make their New Year’s Eve special and the staff at the Champagne Ball will do their best to make the event spectacular.
Thank you for your continued support. We’ll see you on New Year’s Eve!
We’ll send updates about discounts, entertainment, and other special features!
You’re also now entered to win!
On 12/24, we’re giving away (2) reserved seats + Hilton Portland Downtown hotel room for this year’s Champagne Ball.
