Kingdom Days

June 2017

Join us in reinventing Breckenridge’s colorful past during the Kingdom Days in Breckenridge! This festival is unique to Breckenridge and celebrates over 150 years of Breckenridge’s diverse history with mining, exploration and adventure.

Founded in 1859, Breckenridge was inadvertently excluded from some copies of the U.S. maps, becoming known as "Colorado's Kingdom" until 1936 when it finally became incorporated. For an entire weekend, this real town turns upside down to pay tribute to gold fields and mining, exploration and adventure, brothels and saloons, booms and busts. Be sure to try your hand at gold panning with the Gold Prospectors of Colorado during their Colorado Gold Panning Championships
