Whether it’s snowy or sunny, Colorado is a beautiful place to be during the winter. If you’re looking for events in and around the city, check out the following celebrations when you’re starting to feel a little cooped up.
THE CHRISTKINDL MARKET IN DENVER
The Christkindl Market is open until December 23, and it’s one of the best places to find unique gifts for the many people on your list. This famous spot is known for far more than just shopping though. You’ll also get plenty of holiday entertainment and community as you soak up the spirit of the holidays. This market is also an excellent choice if you’re looking for a traditional snack or a beverage that will warm you up inside and out!
WINTERFEST IN PAGOSA SPRINGS
Take a day trip to the Winterfest in Pagosa Springs which is being held from February 3–4 and includes a hot air balloon ascension, a bike race, and a downhill sled competition. However, what it’s really known for is the famous Penguin Plunge. Fearless people dive into the San Juan River for the sake of local charities in the area as attendees cheer them on. Watch everyone take the notorious jump in as you take in all the natural beauty of Pagosa Springs. Just remember that all events are contingent on how Mother Nature decides to behave!
WINTER CARNIVAL IN STEAMBOAT SPRINGS
Venture out for the day to the Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs to witness and take part in a tradition more than 100 years old. Picture a hoop on fire and a brave skier hopping through it, or a grown man being tugged down main street by a horse — on a shovel! Add in a parade and some fireworks, and this celebration is going to be one memorable event! Taking place from February 7–11, the Winter Carnival promises to be a truly great way to beat those winter blues.
