Breckenridge Ullr Fest

Ullr Fest is an annual winter festival like no other! In Norse mythology, Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) was the God of Winter & Snow, and he loved a good party! So, in honor of him, each year Breckenridge throws a week long celebration of crazy events to honor him, all culminating the annual Ullr Parade down Main Street Breckenridge.

During Ullr Fest you can expect to see horned Viking hats adorning the heads of skiers and snowboarders, Ullymipic competitors flinging frying pans for prizes and more than 12,000 Ullr enthusiasts filling the street for the annual Ullr Parade to watch the crazy participants skiing off jumps on Main Street or gliding along town in a hot tub or on a sofa.

Come celebrate Winter they way Ullr would at Ullr Fest in Breckenridge!
