Get Your Pride On!

Breck Pride

It’s time for the second Annual Breck Pride Week March 7-11! Come join in the party as our little mountain town celebrates our LGBTQ community. It all kicks off with a party to celebrate our High-Country LGBTQ locals at the Dredge Bar where you can get late night happy hour, play pool or shoot some darts.

Thursday evening come join in Gay Trivia at Napper Tandy’s Irish Pub at 7 pm, then make your way down main street to one of best steakhouses in the area, Kenosha, for Drag Bingo and other special performances, hosted by Dixie Krystals and Shirley Delta Blow. If that doesn’t interest you, head to Rocky Mountain Underground (RMU) and learn to press a ski while drinking beer or wine with other Pride-goers.

Kick off Friday morning with Breck Pride First Tracks and get exclusive access to the resort for a few runs before the public gains access. When you’ve finished skiing, head to the bottom of Beaver Run to enjoy a cocktail or two before starting Karaoke where you can sing your heart out or check out one of the many other events that day.

Saturday will be another full day of Pride events including a color run that starts at the top of Peak 9 and ends at the Maggie. Throughout the afternoon, stop in at the Pride Festival at the Village Plaza for live music, colorful vendors, games and the ultimate dance party. Don’t forget your drink at the Bud Light Beer Garden! End the night with Breck Pride’s Closing Party at the Riverwalk Center featuring DJ Rockstar Aaron.

End the weekend with Regg-Gay Sunday Brunch at the Blue River Bistro with $15 Bottomless Mimosas. Who doesn’t love mimosas?!
