Frozen Dead Guy and Gal

Start the festival weekend off right at this free event

Frozen Dead Guy Days is just around the corner, marking the dawn of a new era for festivals and musical events in Estes Park. And on Friday, March 17 at 4 p.m. the community is gathering to celebrate the start of it all.

Mayor Wendy Koenig will kick off the event with a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a “cracking of the first can” of the official Frozen Dead Guy Days beer by Nick Smith of Lumpy Ridge Brewing and a toast to Grandpa Bredo by John Cullen of The Stanley Hotel.

The Icebreaker Kickoff will start soon after. You can rock out to a free show by Chain Station and A-Mac & The Height and grab food and drink from the surrounding food trucks. The show lasts until 7 p.m., so plan to make an evening of it!

County Commissioners Jody Shadduck-McNally and Kristin Stephens, Town Trustees, and Visit Estes Park Board of Directors will be in attendance to congratulate the numerous partners who have worked so hard to make this event a success, including:
