Has it really been a year already? It seems like just yesterday I was waking up in a tent, a light sweat on my brow, empty beer cans tossed around beside me. Stepping out into that sunshine, that fresh early summer goodness, to the sound of badass bands getting down on stage and thousands of people engaged in the revelry that it seems only Colorado can provide, I knew exactly where I was: Burning Can Festival. 

 . .
Yes, Colorado, it’s back. But first, some history: The Burning Can Fest at the Lyons Outdoor Games originally began as a Whitewater festival, celebrating the adventurous lifestyle of Lyons, CO. Over the years, additional events were added like a BMX dirt jump comp, slack line, dog jumping and more. LOG continued as a local favorite event for almost a decade. Then came the tragic flood of 2013 that almost wiped Lyons off the map. Then Oskar Blues came to the rescue (thank you, Oskar Blues) and merged it’s Burning Can festival into the event as a way to raise funds for the town’s recovery. Since then the event has grown and won awards such as: Top 10 Beer Fest by USA Today, the “Best Multi-Sport” and “Rowdiest Event” of the Rockies by Elevation Outdoors Magazine.

Burning can Festival 2019 will take place at Bohn Park in Lyons, Colorado, on June 1st. The overnight festival features camping (duh), outdoor sports including a beer relay and field games, plenty of fresh mountain air since we’re camped out at the base of Bohn Park, tons of great music – including MOONTAXI and Wildermiss this year – and the beer festival. Let’s be real, that’s why most of us are going.

70 + craft breweries on-site. You’re free to make as many loops around that as you can before you find yourself, once again, passed out in a tent but their cans tossed aside. Sitting out by the campfires, watching The Burning can glow hot and Crackle as coloradans and guests gather around is what makes this event so special. It’s always a blast and yellow Scene Magazine is proud to be a sponsor for another year. So yes, we will be on site, snapping pics and hanging out and drinking with everybody else. See you there.
