UllrGrass is a 3-day festival dedicated to beer and music, held during the last week of January in Golden, Colorado. Ullr is the Norse God of Winter, and the festival brings in plenty of Viking vibes. Attendees are encouraged to dress in Viking regalia and enjoy the beautiful outdoors, live music, performing arts, and craft beer.
In addition to wintertime Rocky Mountains views, UllrGrass boasts an impressive lineup of bluegrass, funk, newgrass, and jamband music. Live concerts on Friday and Saturday nights are held in large heated tents in Parfet Park. Two alternating stages feature bands like Ms. Amy & the Jet Set, Funky Freiya, Sheryl Renee, Susannah, Coral Creek, Chain Station, Rapidgrass, and Hunker Down.
Live acts are complemented by craft brews and ciders from over 30 Colorado breweries. The Beer Festival takes place only on Saturday, from 1pm to 4 pm. However, food trucks offer excellent food and tasty treats all weekend long.
Sunday is an excellent day to attend the festival with children. In addition to a Virtuosity Dance performance at Noon, there will be a Costume Parade, an UllrEgg Hunt, various craft activities, and games. UllrGrass proceeds benefit the Kids Music Project by Coral Creek, providing music education and performance to kids in Colorado.
