Birthplace of Oskar Blues Brewery and the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, Lyons, CO is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and craft beer lovers alike. The collaboration between the Town of Lyons and Oskar Blues to produce Burning Can Fest 2017 at the Outdoor Games is the perfect culmination of both.
With 50+ craft breweries, trail running, biking, kayaking, yoga, kids zone and on-site camping, attendees can make a whole weekend out of it. Rocky Mountain revelry will ensue with music from The Humble and headlining act Rubblebucket, plus Colorado craft cuisine from a half dozen food vendors.

The music headliner for this year’s unofficial kick-off to summer is Rubblebucket, an American funk and psychedelic band hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Their horn-driven Afro-funk is led by female vocalist & saxophonist Kalmia Traver. Alternative rock band The Humble will kick things off and get the crowd primed for dancing.
Burning Can Fest at the Lyons Outdoor Games features participant and spectator sport competitions including The La Sportiva Trail Run Relay, a fun-focused team trail running race along the single track trail in the foothills of Lyons. There is even a ‘Beer Relay’ category for runners to drink a beer before each lap. Runners complete as many 5K laps as possible within the four-hour period. Runners will cheers each other post-race with Oskar Blues beers to celebrate their adventure.
Cyclists can start the day with a cruiser ride along a ‘best of Lyons’ loop. Legendary mountain bike freeriding and trials rider Jeff Lenosky will perform jaw-dropping demos and host mountain bike clinics throughout the weekend. Lenosky is a three-time National Champion and World Record Holder for the highest bunny hop on a mountain bike (45.5 inches).
Ticket holders are welcome to watch world-class athletes competing in both open and professional competitions. The day’s line-up includes Outlaws of Dirt BMX/Dirt Jump competitions and Slalom Kayak Competition. There will also be Dog Jumping contests, yoga sessions, a cornhole tournament, a disc golf tournament, and slackline demos with Slackline Industries.
Keep the party going at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew once the park closes at 10PM. Rose Hill Drive will play a special Late Night Juke Joint show that evening.
Tickets to the show are $15 and are available HERE or added to a Burning Can ticket package. Tent and RV camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights in Bohn Park. Camping spaces are sold through the event website.
