Mardi Gras

Make no mistake about it, we give our friend down in the Big Easy a run for their money! Voted one of the Best Mardi Gras Parties Outside of New Orleans by Bustle.com, our two-mile high festivities have become known for setting the bar for Mardi Gras in the mountains! Each year, Breckenridge is taken over by masks, beads, boas, music and festivity to commemorate the holiday.


Fat Tuesday Celebration

Breckenridge Mardi Gras will kick off in style from 2pm – 5pm, Tuesday February 9th for our annual “Fat Tuesday” Street Party. For three hours, Main Street Breckenridge and the Blue River Plaza will be filled with live music from Chris Daniels and the Kings, a horn-driven, jazz and swing-inspired act that’s performed around the world with the likes of B.B. King, The Neville Brothers, Ziggy Marley and more.. As well as larger than life street puppets and fire dancers. So come out and enjoy this lively New Orleans style Mardi Gras party – and the best part? Admission is free!
