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.

The Champagne Ball always brings in the area’s top entertainment to keep you on the dance floor and enjoying your friends. 18 bars are strategically situated throughout the venue, so waiting in line for a drink is almost never necessary. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you’re ready to have fun! We require that our guests dress for the occasion; this is a black tie-to-cocktail attire event (jeans will be turned away at the door). We also ramp up the atmosphere with tons of party favors, and a massive video countdown with balloon drops & colorful confetti cannons.

If you’re looking for a fun New Year’s Eve party and want to celebrate in style, please join us at the Hilton Portland Downtown for the Champagne Ball.
