Snowdown: What You Need to Know

Winter in Colorado is a long, dark time. Many days you’ll find the sun hiding behind the mountains by midafternoon. Snowdown is a bright spot during the dark winter for Durango. Planning a trip to Durango during Snowdown means bracing yourself for a party of epic proportions. Here are a few things you need to know about Snowdown in Durango:

Who: Snowdown is planned and hosted each year by a non-profit committee and a board of nine directors. Many Durango businesses get in on the fun and host their own events, too. While many of Snowdown’s events involve drinking and adult humor, there are many family friendly events and activities throughout the event as well.

What: Durango has been hosting a Snowdown celebration each winter for over 40 years. More than 100 events and activities are fit into a 5-day window. Beard growing contests, joke off, hot wing eating contest, beer plunge, outhouse stuffing and a light parade are all on the agenda.

When: This 5-day festival takes place each winter, usually during the last week in January. Snowdown 2022 will be from January 26th to January 30th.

Where: Durango, Colorado, tucked away in the Four Corners, is home to Snowdown. The festival spreads across town, with many local businesses hosting celebrations and events.
