Frozen Dead Guy Days Festival 2020 Cancelled
This weird story begins when the body of Bredo Morstøl was brought into the U.S. by his grandson Trygve Bauge from Norway.
Today, the organizers announced the cancellation of the event following Boulder County Public Health’s recommendations to cancel all large event activities.
From 1990 till 1993 it was stored in one of California’s cryo facilities and was then transported to the town of Nederland, Colorado. Trygve was looking to open his own cryo facility there but when it did not work out due to his deportation, the job of keeping his grandpa frozen went to the “Ice Man” - a man by the name of Bo Shaffer who became the caretaker responsible for bringing in fresh dry ice to store the body of Bredo in the Tuff Shed.
In 1995, the story made headlines and the Nederland city council even passed a separate provision outlawing keeping of the bodies but later making an exception for grandpa Bredo, as he came to be called by the fans in later years.
The first celebrations occurred around 2002. Frozen Dead Guy Days is typically “observed” on the second weekend of March.
For almost two decades, the Frozen Dead Guy Days has been an extremely popular event with people flocking from all over the U.S. and the world. The festival involves plenty of live music, weird and crazy costumes, and fun activities like polar plunge, which often means diving by breaking through the ice, coffin racing, snowy parade, frozen turkey bowling and salmon tossing. FDGD even have its own ice cream flavor. And, of course, the fan favorite is a tour of the Tuff Shed where the Bredo has found its resting place.
You can check out the detailed event schedule on the festival's official website.
So come on down to Nederland, Colorado for one of the wildest and amazing events of the year!

Despite a preliminary court victory last December, CannaMart, Centennial’s now-closed medical-marijuana dispensary, will not be allowed to reopen in the city anytime soon.
Thieves target a medical marijuana dispensary in what police believe was supposed to be a quick smash and grab.
