The story behind the Champagne Ball, Portland’s Most Famous New Year’s Eve Party.
On December 31, 1990, Champagne Ball founder Mathew Weber went out to celebrate New Year’s Eve. He hit a local hot spot where he waited in long lines to get a drink. He couldn’t find his friends or a place to sit.
He still remembers standing in line to use the restroom thinking that New Year’s Eve is special night; that people should dress up, that they should be able to get a drink quickly and most importantly that people ought to have fun!
The next year Weber threw a New Year’s Eve party at the East Bank Saloon, 115 people showed up and the Champagne Ball was born. Twenty-five years later the Champagne Ball has outgrown three venues including the Portland Marriott and The Governor Hotel (The Sentinel) and since 2000 the event has made its home at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower.
Throughout the years Weber has done his best to hold true to the core values that have made the party such a success; make it fun, have plenty of bars, hire excellent entertainment and require that people dress for the occasion.
This year is the Silver Edition of the Champagne Ball and the party is packed with all new entertainment, and includes the biggest countdown the Champagne Ball has every seen.
