In 2020, the West Hollywood City Council approved the cancellation of all major special events in the City of West Hollywood through the end of 2020. However, the city remains in a declared local emergency in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, so the City of West Hollywood decided to continue the cancellation of many large-scale events and gatherings during 2021, including a large Pride celebrations in June, and the Halloween Carnaval. The same goes for the popular alcohol-free NYE Party #BOOM! 2022.
This year #BOOM! is coming to your living room. The drug and alcohol-free NYE party is going virtual with a live-broadcast hosted by West Hollywood’s own premier drag performer Salina EsTitties.
The broadcast will feature:
– Music from djquinnc
– Celebrity Guests
– Musical performances and Entertainment
– A midnight countdown
The first 300 guests to register will receive a ‘party in a box’ kit with decorations, swag and refreshments to celebrate 2022 with a #BOOM!. Details to come.
The party starts Friday, December 31, 2021 at 9:30, Pacific Time, New Year’s.
#BOOM! was founded by Jimmy Palmieri and 5 other dedicated community members. The idea was born out of a need for a safe space on New Year’s Eve for the recovery community and individuals who want a drug and alcohol-free NYE party celebration.
The event is sponsored by the City of West Hollywood in partnership with Tweaker’s Project, West Hollywood Recovery Center, APLA Health, and West Hollywood Project,
