While there will be boundless options for fun and adventure throughout the weekend, the main events will occur on Monday, July 4th.
Independence Day 10K Trail Run – Don’t miss this favorite kick-off to the 4th of July weekend. The race offers some of the best views in Breckenridge and will begin from Carter Park at 7 AM. The race is limited to 400 people and usually sells out, register HERE.
The Firecracker 50 Mountain Bike Race – Hungry for a taste of what the locals ride every day? The course feature multiple laps, each with 4,000 feet of climbing. There are grunty hill climbs, a couple of tough lungbusters, some terrifyingly steep descents, and plenty of contouring flume and singletrak. This event is the kick-off to the famous Main Street Parade!
Fourth of July Garden Party – Sponsored by the Breck Heritage Alliance, this wonderful garden party is known for their delicious breakfast spread, powerful mimosas, and for having the absolute best spot in town for parade viewing right on the Barney Ford House Lawn.

Main Street Parade – The official parade will start at 10 AM with the Red, White and Blue Color Guard, just after 800 bikers pedal down Main Street. Floats will begin on the north end of town and finish on the south side of Main. Be more than a spectator and register to participate HERE.
