Lighting of Breckenridge & Race of the Santas

Dec 4, 2021

The lighting is a soft deadline, always the first weekend of December,  for all places in town to be decorated for Christmas. In the past, Santa would parade slowly down Main Street and magically turn on the holiday decorations as he passed (with the help of merchants who would flip their respective switches).

Today, hundreds of Santas race down the street.  All with the same goal as before, to get to the skating pond and warming lodge at the Village at Breckenridge, where more fun and food can be found.

Ullr Fest

Dec 8-12, 2021

The celebration of the Old Norse god of Snow - Ullr - has been a tradition in Breckenridge since the ski resort began. Bonfires, Kings and Queens, and other archaic events have happened during Ullr and may again take place in 2021 - world events permitting.

International Snow Sculpture Championships

Jan 24 - Jan 30, 2022

Every January since the 1980s, some of the finest snow sculptors in the world come to Breckenridge to carve a block of snow two times their height. The blocks are formed by ski resort snowmakers, and local foot stompers the week prior  to the event, and the judging - all work must stop - is on Jan 30, 2022.
