Frozen Dead Guy Days Festival

March 11-13, 2016

Celebrating its 15th year in 2016, Nederland, Colorado’s Frozen Dead Guy Days is known as one of the most unique and quirky festivals in the country and continues to be a world-renowned spectacle. The home-grown frosty fest pays homage to Bredo Morstol who is frozen in a state of suspended animation and housed in a Tuff Shed on dry ice high above Nederland. Thousands of adventurous, life enthusiasts come annually to participate in and view the events along with local, national and international media and entertainment.

Colorado’s “most frigidly fun festival” features outrageous events like the Blue Ball, coffin races, costumed polar plunge, ice turkey bowling, frozen T-shirt and brain freeze contests, Snowy Human Foosball, a parade of hearses and a frozen salmon toss. It all takes place amid an incredible free music festival featuring Colorado’s most talented acts in an “eccentric cross between morbid and hilarious that permeates the weekend’s atmosphere.”

This short video documents the awesomeness of the 2015 Frozen Dead Guy Days festival in Nederland, Colorado. It was produced, shot and edited by three aspiring film makers; Andrew Turk, Justin Smouse and A.J. Wager. Thanks again to the event organizers, ‘the Iceman,’ Colorado Community Radio, and the entire community of Nederland!
