FUNKY NEW YEAR’S EVE CELEBRATION WITH SPLIT WINDOW
Warren Station throws one epic New Year’s Eve party every year and 2022 is no exception! Split Window is a multi-member ensemble hailing from the South Park region of Colorado. Split Window plays with up to 12 members in the ensemble, meaning no two Split Window shows are the same, which guarantees a fun and memorable experience from every show! With a free photo booth, party favors, and an explosive midnight celebration, New Year’s Eve at Warren Station is a staple Summit County tradition!
Bonus Tip: Get to Keystone Resort early to catch the New Year’s Eve Fireworks!
MARDI GRAS PARTY AND GUMBO COOK-OFF
Next up is Keystone’s Mardi Gras Party, complete with the return of the first Gumbo Cook-Off since covid shut ‘er down! Come enjoy a day of skiing at Keystone Resort during the day, then après at the Mardi Gras Party from 3pm-5pm! Both adult’s and kids’ gumbo-tasting wristbands are available for this funky, family-friendly event. NEW this year at Keystone Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street Hurricanes get the party started with an authentic second line march through River Run Village. Bourbon Street Hurricanes will bring the funk with free live music all afternoon! No Mardi Gras Party would be complete without a cash bar, photo booth, free face painting, and stilt walkers from The Salida Circus. This is one funky Tuesday event you won’t want to miss!
Bonus Tip: Book Tuesday night lodging in Keystone so you can keep the funk going after dark! Our partners at Keystone Resort and SummitCove have you covered.
FUNKY ON THE FIRST: LOCAL’S APPRECIATION PARTY
The last funky event celebrates the end of a stellar ski season! April first falls on a Saturday in 2023, so naturally, we are taking the opportunity to get Funky on the First at a Warren Station local’s appreciation party! Celebrate the return of spring sunshine by taking slushy laps at Keystone, then après at another funky event at Warren Station. What exactly does local’s appreciation mean? It means Keystone loves the locals that support our events year-round, so much so that we’ve decided to throw this party just for you! Locals’ appreciation means killer drink deals and dancing like no one’s watching. Live music from The Losers’ Club playing a Blink-182 tribute set will warrant dressing up in your best 90’s attire and entering the costume contest! Bonus points for meticulously recreating all of Travis Barker’s tattoos.
Bonus Tip: This rad event will sell out, so plan in advance and buy your tickets early!
What do all these funky events have in common? We hope you have your costume trunk accessible because we are dressing to the nines for these funky times! Refer to the Costume Inspiration Blog if you need help. We can’t wait to see you at Keystone!
