Restaurant: UllrGrass

Location: Golden, CO

What to expect: Blue Grass music, viking hats, snow.


The 3-day festival, UllrGrass (named for the Norse God of Winter – Ullr -  pronounced ooler) is the brain child and passion project of Chris and Susannah Thompson, long-time Golden residents who felt Golden needed a signature event in the middle of winter to bring the community together.   Festival-goers dress in Viking regalia and celebrate community, live music, performing arts and craft beer. 

Named one of the Top Ten Outdoor Festivals in Colorado by the Westword, UllrGrass features a diverse lineup of bluegrass, newgrass, funk and jamband artists announced in November of the prior year.

Patrons enjoy live music on two alternating stages while sampling craft brews and ciders from 30+ breweries from across Colorado . The evening shows on Friday and Saturday night will take place in Parfet Park under heated big top tents. Sunday is “FREE Family Day” at UllrGrass; featuring an UllrEgg Hunt, craft activities and games.  Food trucks provide a variety of tasty treats all weekend long.
