Did you know?
-Breckenridge Music has been around for 38 years!
-The Breckenridge Music story began in the summer of 1980, when a group of full- and part-time residents put together a ten-day music festival to mark the anniversary celebration of Father Dyer Church. The event was so well received by residents, visitors, and musicians that plans were made to have it become an annual event.
-Breckenridge Music’s program is incredibly diverse. This summer you can enjoy everything from Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue to Chris Brubeck, outdoor yoga with live classical music, to world-renowned musicians and nationally-recognized touring acts!
2019 Breckenridge Music Festival Line-up:
Imagine a late summer afternoon in Summit County, a long luxurious table set outdoors for an intimate group with a view provided by the glorious mountains that surround us, sun shining, music playing, wine cooling, waiters awaiting your arrival, and a renowned chef putting finishing touches on a five course dinner that will be nothing like any you’ve had before!

This very special event will feature a five-course meal exquisitely prepared to the highest standard by a professional chef and wine pairings that will enhance the food and the experience.
