Breckenridge ULLR FEST
Once upon a time, the Norse winter god, Ullr (OOOL-er), was traveling around the Northern Hemisphere depositing snow, when he happened to find himself in the resort ski town of Breckenridge. Locals were pleased to receive Ullr’s gift of snow, and decided to celebrate each year to encourage even more snow on their scenic town and ski area.
During Breckenridge Ullr Fest, the local bars and restaurants enjoy offering games and specials to draw in the crowds, and there are numerous fun and sometimes a bit wild events all week. There’s a free talent show with free beer for the first 200 attendees, the crowning of the King and Queen of Ullr, and an ice plunge at Maggie Pond. But the fun really gets going at Ullr Parade on Main Street! You will see helmets with large horns, people dressed as Ullr, ski decorations and much more. Check out the Ullr bonfire after the parade for more snow dancing and celebration. Want more info? Find the entire Ullr Fest Schedule here.
