Breckenridge Ullr Fest ❄ December 11-15, 2019
Calling all snow lovers! This is one Breckenridge annual winter festival you don't want to miss! In Norse mythology, Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) was the God of Winter & Snow, and he loved a good party! So, for over 50 years, both Breckenridge residents and visitors alike have gathered to honor him with a week long celebration of crazy events!
Expect to see enthusiastic skiers and snowboarders, heads adorned with horned Viking hats, flinging frying pans for prizes during the Ullympics. Join Ullr enthusiasts as they take to the street to watch the annual Ullr Parade where crazy participants ski off jumps on Main Street or glide around town in a hut tub. All of this culminates into the biggest bonfire in town.
