Breckenridge Heritage Alliance: Breckenridge Sawmill Museum @ Breckenridge Sawmill Museum
May 28 @ 8:00 am

 

The historic homes, stores, and mines still standing in Breckenridge today could not have existed without the sawmills that processed trees cleared from local hillsides. One of our newest attractions, the sawmill museum offers a self-guided tour of the equipment used by early frontiersmen to cut and prepare timbers for construction.

Breckenridge Heritage Alliance: Red, White & Blue Fire Museum
May 28 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

The Breckenridge Fire Department dates back to 1880, when volunteer firefighters used hand-powered equipment to fight the catastrophic fires that swept through town. Find an original ladder cart, restored hose cart, uniforms and more at the Red, White & Blue Fire Museum, available for tours with a modern firefighter and as a rental for kids’ parties and events.

The museum is open year-round with tours lead by modern firefighters; please visit the Red, White & Blue Fire Station (next to the museum) or call 970-453-2474 to arrange a tour.

Dr. Sandra F. Pritchard Mather Archive Facility @ Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center
May 28 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

This state-of-the-art new archives room is the first of its kind in Breckenridge.

Researchers are encouraged to make an appointment to explore the Archives collections. For more information, visit breckenridgearchives.com.

RHYTHM RENEWAL- FREE ONLINE EVENT
May 28 @ 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm

Join Breck Music Education for an online, interactive musical experience! We’ll play fun cultural rhythms, musical games, movement activities, sing, and more to build connections, creativity, and community. Kids, teens, and adults can all participate. No experience is necessary. And, you don’t have to have a drum to participate. Please watch our short video about the program, drums, and found sounds you can use to make music. We can’t all play music together simultaneously, but there’s much more possible than you’d expect. Our facilitator, Jonathan Crowder, has been guiding groups in interactive drumming and musical programs for nearly 20 years, including drum circles in Breckenridge for many years.

Registration Information:
Registration for each class ends at midnight the day of the session. You may register by clicking the “tickets” button above. Instructions on how to access the class virtually will be sent via email to every participant the morning of each class. For the optimal experience, it is recommended to sign up for all four classes. We can ask that you have one registration per family (this way multiple kids can participate by sharing a screen at home, if possible). Space is limited to the first 24 to sign up for each class.
