“The City of West Hollywood provides a wide variety of nightlife options every day of the year,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “On New Year’s Eve, I encourage everyone who wants a safe space to celebrate without the presence of alcohol and drugs to join in the fun at #BOOM!, West Hollywood’s premier sober holiday event.”

The holiday season can be a particularly challenging time for people with substance abuse or mental health issues. #BOOM! is a safe space for anyone who wants to celebrate the New Year without the presence of alcohol or drugs.

The event is spearheaded by the West Hollywood Project, an initiative funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, to reduce alcohol and drug-related harms in West Hollywood.

Limited parking for #BOOM! will be available in the adjacent West Hollywood Park five-story parking structure, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. #BOOM! is sponsored by the City of West Hollywood, the Institute for Public Strategies, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the West Hollywood Project, the West Hollywood Recovery Center, and APLA Health. Admission is free but capacity is limited.
