Rocky Mountains Events’ Breckenridge Food and Wine. This is happening from Friday, July 29, through Sunday, July 31, for the first time since 2019. Aside from the Breckenridge Sunday Market, it is the first Rocky Mountains Events production to return following the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We haven’t changed much,” Kristi Rashidi of Rocky Mountain Events said. “We’ve got really great vendors this year, we’ve tightened up the food in terms of quality and I think we’ve got more beverage vendors than we ever have had.”
Friday’s paired dinner and Sunday’s brunch, along with the VIP lounge on Saturday, July 30, are all sold out. Rashidi said ticket sales have surpassed those of 2019, and some people who bought tickets for 2020 back then have held onto them to redeem this year.
Saturday’s grand tasting is from 2-6 p.m., however, last call is at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $60 in advance then increase to $70 on the day of the event. Designated driver tickets are also available.
Visit RockyMountainEvents.com to purchase tickets for this weekend’s festival, or upcoming ones such as Breckenridge Hog Fest and Breckenridge Strings, Ciders & Sours.
