As the city prepares to celebrate at NYE 2017: The Black & White Ball, we bring you the highlights from the Twin Cities’ premier New Year’s Eve affair.



One of the most imaginative events to come from the nyempls.com production crew was NYE 2012: Mystique. The night built upon themes from cirque du soleil and the celebration of the human form with an awe-inspiring, over-the-top fashion show from Ignite Models, out of this world drapery and decor, and traditional cirque performances by the world-renowned Circus Juventas and Cirque DuVolo.

A year later, NYE 2013: Midnight in Morocco returned to Epic Event Center, with an alluring evening saturated with rich hues and exotic beats. The seductive night was enhanced by mesmerizing acts from fire performers, belly dancers, and snake charmers, and top Twin Cities DJs kept the crowd spellbound into the night.

Moving to NYE 2014: A Masked Affair, the nyempls.com event continued in its groundbreaking immersive style with a masquerade ball.  Mystery and intrigue permeated a night filled with glittering masks, breathtaking decor, and fascinations including model mannequins come to life and aerialists soaring high above.





NYE 2015: Carnaval offered an upscale occasion and a vibrant party atmosphere inspired by Rio de Janeiro. With stilt walkers, fire performers, and aerial acrobatics and a stellar line-up of local and national DJs, the colorful, dazzling party was a unique and exciting one to remember.




At NYE 2016: Studio 54, a new venue brought the event to new heights at the beautifully renovated Hyatt Regency Hotel.  Channeling the carefree decadence of the iconic venue, this night in glitter and gold featured living model disco balls, a 30ft LED wall, and roller girl performances.  The intensive production held true to tradition in surpassing New Year’s Eve expectations.
