Breathtaking mountains, endless outdoor activities, Main Street festivals, and the authentic community are my reasons for making Breck, home.

Even with snow falling and cooler temps there’s never a shortage of entertainment and events during our wintry months. The events are not only the best in the Rockies, but gather our locals together and bring artists, musicians and world-famous athletes to town. Make some memories here this winter. Check out our top 5 winter events in Breckenridge…


December 31

Ring in the New Year in Breckenridge! Watch the fireworks light up the peaks, have a romantic dinner out or enjoy the nightlife and dancing with friends!

Ullr Fest is celebrating 55 years this January. This event is absolutely a local’s favorite & one you won’t want to miss. Get your snow dance on and watch the parade, break the World’s Longest Shot Ski record, prove your dedication to Ullr by doing the ice plunge, and dance at the biggest bonfire in town! Let. It. Snow.
