The Grandest of Evenings

The Empress has played hostess to numerous grand balls over the years. In 1919, Edward Prince of Wales waltzed the night away in the iconic Crystal Ballroom. Be part of a grand tradition and let Fairmont Empress’ historic Crystal Ballroom eloquently ring in your New Year. This year, in classically formal fashion, Fairmont Empress’ New Year’s Eve Event will involve black-tie attire, cocktails upon arrival, live entertainment and a four-course seated dinner.

You’ve waited for this: now it’s time to gather those who mean the most to you and share an experience like no other.
