Birthplace of Oskar Blues Brewery and the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, Lyons, CO is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and beer lovers alike. The collaboration between the Town of Lyons and Oskar Blues to produce Burning Can Fest 2017 at the Outdoor Games is the perfect culmination of both. With 50+ craft breweries, trail running, biking, kayaking, yoga, kids zone and on-site camping, attendees can make a whole weekend out of it. Rocky Mountain revelry will ensue with music from The Humble and headlining act Rubblebucket, plus Colorado craft cuisine from a half dozen food vendors.
