Events & Programs



Set your New Year’s Eve ablaze at Spectra, the most sensational party in Seattle! Spectra boasts the best view of the annual fireworks show, top DJs performing live, open bars for VIP ticket holders and plenty of entertainment that’s sure to delight. PacSci members receive additional savings to Spectra, and our new Fusion Membership is a unique blend of science and social.


Celebrate the Roaring ’20s at Spectra

9 p.m. – 2 a.m.
Kick off the ’20s with us at this year’s Spectra. Enjoy a swanky night out on the town with a full, unmatched view of the annual fireworks show at the Space Needle. Dance into the New Year to electro-swing beats while showing off your glad rags! Celebrate at this party for the ages—it’s the cat’s meow!

Science is on full display throughout the night, too! Grab your friends old and new for a picture in the Gas Spectra Tubes Photo Booth. Throughout the night, explore diamond making, build glammed up robots, see an Illusions Show, meet our Exotic Animals, and be wowed by a Van de Graaf Generator.

Dance to the tunes of DJ Kemyst of KUBE 93 and DJ Native Havoc, see a Laser performance, or try Laser Karaoke with Baby Ketten.

Spectra sells out every year, and you don’t want to miss this bash.

Guests are encouraged to drink responsibly.
