What is Frozen Dead Guy Days?
Celebrating it’s 14th year in 2015, 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.
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 beach volleyball, a parade of hearses and the 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.”
Frozen Dead Guy Days is a terrific marketing opportunity, sponsors reach thousands of active, affluent adults who enjoy the outdoors, winter activities, craft beer, MMJ and live music. Frozen Dead Guy Days sponsorship offers a unique way to increase brand awareness, is a perfect spot to launch a new product or service, drive retail traffic, stimulate sales and ultimately associate your brand with a much loved consumer experience.

The FDGD Guide reaches tens of thousands throughout the Peak to Peak region, Boulder, Denver and surrounding areas for several weeks before and during the event, as well as year-round in Nederland where local merchants and the Nederland visitor center continue to hand it out to inquiring tourist.
In addition to more than a decade of coverage around the world (including television shows from Belgium, Canada, Russia, Japan), Frozen Dead Guy Days won the 2010 Governor’s Award for Best Promotional Event in Colorado, made Lonely Planet, Hotels.com and Fest 300 top ten lists, has donned the pages of the New York Times, Southwest Airlines’ Spirit magazine, Subaru’s Drive, USA Today’s Go Escape magazine, CNN has FDGD listed as “One of the Best Costumed Festivals in the Country” and the story of the Grandpa Bredo was just featured on the Travel Channel’s, Monumental Mysteries and Fox News came to FDGD 2014.
