Whether you watch a drag queen descend from above in a giant shoe, or cover yourself in glitter during goat yoga, this coming year is bound to be fabulous if it starts at one of these travel-worthy events.

This weekend-long New Year’s Eve circus goes all weekend long, with parties hopping between some of LA’s hottest clubs. It all starts Thursday at the Avalon, with a funhouse theme and music by Eddie Martinez and Sagi Kariv. Next is the main event, Circus 2022 at the Mayan. Complete with circus tents, surprise performances, and music by Manny Lehman and GSP, going all night long until 6 am. Before that party can die down, the “freak show” afterparty starts up back at the Academy at 3 am with music by Nina Flowers ending at 10 am, just in time for brunch. Get in a good nap on New Year’s Day because there’s one more party Saturday night at Catch One, with multiple rooms and performances at once.
