Gold Panning Championship

June 17-19, 2016

Celebrate Breckenridge’s Gold Panning Championships with us this summer! The panning championship is a celebration of Breckenridge’s history as a mining town and includes free entrance to all town historic sites, gold panning, music, free historic old-fashioned photos and more!

The Gold Panning Championship is also the festival that marks the unofficial beginning of the Breckenridge summer season. The weather is almost always perfect, and all businesses are open and operating on all cylinders.

Join us and help Breckenridge celebrate its heritage at the Gold Panning Championships. Breckenridge was founded in 1859 and mistakenly left off some U.S. maps for quite awhile. Breckenridge became known as “Colorado’s Kingdom” until it was finally incorporated in 1936.
