The annual Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival is April 8, 2017. It takes place during Spring Fever, a month-long festival that brings ski season to an end with a bang.
The Spring Beer Festival is located at Main Street Station & the Village at Breckenridge, next door to the slopes. More than 50 craft breweries show up to pour their beer at this event that includes live music.
Spring Fever, March 18 through April 23, keeps things rocking in Breckenridge with a chili cookoff, on mountain fun and more. A new addition this year, Breck Pride, March 22-26, is a week of music, apres ski and comedy.
