March 2014 Colorado Beer Festivals & Events Calendar

March is another cold and snowy months in Colorado, but it also brings some of the biggest celebrations of the year - Mardi Gras (March 4th) and Saint Patrick's Day. This year, St. Patty's Day falls on Monday, which means celebrations will run from Friday, March 14th through Monday the 17th. March also brings the promise of Spring, but almost all beer festivals this month are still indoors.

These calendar listings are updated almost daily whenever new events are made public. Event organizers wishing to have their Colorado beer-related event added to these calendar listings please use the Contact Form and let us know all the details. In most cases, the event will be listed within a day or two.
