Burning Can Fest at Lyons Outdoor Games

Saturday, June 2 | Bohn Park

The unofficial kick-off to summer is back. The 2018 Burning Can Festival at the Lyons Outdoor Games presented by Oskar Blues Brewery and the Town of Lyons is the ultimate weekend for lovers of adventure, craft beer, music, and camping. Birthplace of Oskar Blues and the original craft beer in a can, and the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, Lyons, CO, is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and beer lovers alike.

This year’s Burning Can lineup includes a beer fest celebrating craft beer in a can featuring 70+ craft breweries, 250+ canned beers, adventure sports, trail running, biking, yoga, a kids’ zone, plus Colorado craft cuisine from popular local vendors. The music and dance vibes will be in full effect with three music headliners: alternative country band Son Volt, rock-n-roll band The Sheepdogs and alternative rock band Mo Lowda & The Humble.



This year's events include the La Sportiva Trail Run Relay, BMX/Dirt Jump competitions, a slalom kayak competition, "Dock Dogs" dog-jumping contests, yoga, cornhole, and disc golf!
