Looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday? Check out the fifth annual Upslope Get Down. This event is always a treat, and is especially worthwhile if you love local brews. If you’re interested in stopping by, we’ve got the scoop.
When and Where
Upslope Brewing Company, a Boulder-based brewery, will be hosting this annual get-together on Saturday, May 19. The event is an all-day affair, running from 2:00-10:00pm at the Flatiron Park brewery location.
About the Event
This charitable event is only here once a year. The back parking lot of the Flatiron Park brewery will transform into a three-stage platform for live music, games, art shows, and of course, plenty of drinks. The bands scheduled to perform include Orgone, Guerrilla Fanfare, Tenth Mountain Division, and more. Although this event is intended for ages 21+, children are permitted with their parent(s) or legal guardians. If you’d like to attend, please keep in mind that pets aren’t allowed on-site. A portion of the proceeds from Upslope Get Down will be donated to Protect Our Winters, an organization of professional athletes and brands committed to combating climate change.
If you love beer and barbeque, you may prefer to upgrade to VIP status. The VIP tent is sponsored by Moe’s Original BBQ, and is perfect for those who are hoping to stay and watch the entire live music lineup. VIP members can lounge in the private tent and enjoy an unbeatable view of the main stage while sipping on unlimited craft beer. In addition to local brews and a delicious barbecue, those who purchase VIP tickets will have the opportunity to sample happy hour cheese and take home a souvenir pint glass.
No need to leave the little ones at home; the Kids’ Zone offers a host of festivities. The main attraction is the 25-foot rock wall provided by Avid4Adventure. This climbing wall is equipped with top of the line safety features, so climbers can explore at their own pace and descend to the ground at any time. The wall isn’t limited to children—adults are also welcome to join the fun.
The annual celebration hosted by Upslope Brewing Company is always a blast. If you’re looking forward to sampling local brews and enjoying live music, be sure to stop by. As an extra perk, you’ll help benefit our planet by supporting this event.
