Frozen Dead Guy Days March 2nd through March 4th in Nederland, CO

This annual event celebrates putting Granpa Bredo on ice to one day find a way to bring him back to life. For a town like Nederland that thrives on the colorful, the offbeat, and the weird, Frozen Dead Guy Days is a fitting way to end the short days of winter and head into the melting snows of spring.  Trygve Bauge calls it “Cryonics’ first Mardi Gras.”The community experiences a new burst of life with the festival’s creative contests, icy events (including coffin racing, polar plunging, frozen salmon tossing) basically if it is fun and can be done in the cold, it goes! People come from around the world every March to experience the legacy of Grandpa Bredo – even representatives of cryonics organizations who want share the science behind this unique story. Come for a big line-up of live music, Coffin Races, Polar Plunges, Frozen T-shirt contests, Ice Turkey Bowling, Brain Freeze contests and of course lots of good Colorado craft beer in the ReAnimate Yourself Beer Tent in Chipeta Park (sponsored by Avery Brewing and Left Hand Brewing).

Cost for a VIP Pass $150 - only 50 available, Coffin Race entry $70, Polar Plunge $20 per person
