Breckenridge Ullr Fest
Since 1963, Breckenridge Ullr Fest (then called Ullr Dag) has been an event that defines what Breckenridge is all about. Ullr fest in Breckenridge is a celebration of the Norse snow god, Ullr, for all of the snow that he bestows on the ski area every year. Due to his winter blessings Breckenridge has become an internationally known premier ski area that hosts many ski events every year. Because of this the town of Breckenridge as well as the local residents celebrate Ullr every year in the hopes of continued heavy snow and ski area success.
Breckenridge Ullr fest has evolved over the years from a drunken blur into a week-long event which includes: the Ullr parade down main street, The Ullr Ball, The Ullr king and queen crowning, Ullr bonfire, snow sculpting competition, and the Ullympics. Ullr fest in Breckenridge started as a local event, but has become a well-known event that draws many vacationers to Breckenridge year after year.
