Be A Vendor

We are excited to be celebrating our 20th year and are stoked about your interest in being a part of FDGD 2022. Dates for FDGD 2022 are March 18th, 19th, 20th.

Application for VENDORS is currently closed.

Thank you for your interest.


Do you have a “do what needs to get done” mentality? Are you flexible and friendly? Then you’re what FDGD is looking for. We need hearty souls to help us throw a safe and fun frosty festival! The festival can’t happen without the heart and soul of you, the volunteer—and there is no better way to enjoy Frozen Dead Guy Days than to really be a part of it.

Volunteer jobs include parking assistance, merchandise sales, event help, set up, clean up,  and more. Shifts are about 4 hours long and, in addition to a fabulous time, you get:

  • Volunteer t-shirt
  • FDGD pint glass
  • 2 drink tokens
  • Catered lounge area with veg/vegan options
  • Lots of new friends 😉

Our volunteer coordinator will let you know your shift, where to check-in and other need-to-know frozen facts.* Note we are requiring all FDGD employees and volunteers to show proof of vaccination (festival attendees will not be required).

As ambassadors of the FDGD festival, there is no partying on the job. When wearing your FDGD Volunteer shirt, you should be doing your job or looking for other ways to help; this could be picking up trash, directing patrons, or helping door staff. You will be asked to remove your shirt and join the party if not conducting yourself in an official manner.

Sponsorship Advantages

Frozen Dead Guy Days is a terrific marketing opportunity. Sponsors reach thousands of active, affluent adults who enjoy the outdoors, winter activities, craft beer, MMJ and live music. Frozen Dead Guy Days sponsorship offers a unique way to increase brand awareness, launch a new product or service,  drive retail traffic, stimulate sales and ultimately associate your brand with a much-loved consumer experience.

The biggest benefits of sponsorship – other than an association with one of Colorado’s most unique and fun festivals – is having an on-site presence in front of 20,000+ life enthusiasts, co- advertisement with publications like the Boulder Weekly, Winter Scene Magazine, Marquee Magazine, Elevations Magazine, KBPI, KBCO, KGNU, Mountain Ear, MMAC Monthly, Boulder Magazine and Yellow Scene Magazine. The FDGD Guide reaches tens of thousands throughout the Peak to Peak region, Boulder, Denver and surrounding areas for several weeks before and during the event, as well as year-round in Nederland where local merchants and the Nederland visitor center continue to hand it out to inquiring tourist. Sponsor logos adorn all FDGD print materials and banners, as well as reach an average of 10,000 viewers monthly via the website. Over 70% of FDGD attendees are active in social media; FDGD has 18k followers, and number that continues to grow year after year.

Media Exposure

In addition to more than a decade of coverage around the world (including television shows from Belgium, Canada, Russia, Japan) and being named one of USA Today‘s top 5 cultural festivals in the country,  Frozen Dead Guy Days won the 2010 Governor’s Award for Best Promotional Event in Colorado, made Lonely Planet, Hotels.com and Fest 300 top ten lists, has donned the pages of the New York Times, Southwest Airlines’ Spirit magazine, Subaru’s Drive,  and USA Today’s Go Escape magazine. CNN has FDGD listed as “One of the Best Costumed Festivals in the Country” and the story of the Grandpa Bredo was featured on the Travel Channel’s, Monumental Mysteries.

Take a look at our videos and recent press.

The festival has also been “immortalized” by two international award-winning documentaries, Grandpa’s In The Tuff Shed and Grandpa’s Still In The Tuff Shed made by the Beeck sisters & Michael Moore.
