Kremmling’s ‘Roadkill Supper’ returns after more than a decade
September 15, 2017
Colorado's high country is filled with unique places, idiosyncratic towns, and one-of-a-kind festivals — and on Saturday, people in Middle Park will get the first opportunity in more than a decade to experience one of the area's most unique events with the return of the Kremmling Chamber of Commerce's Roadkill Supper.
The Roadkill Supper was a hallmark of autumn in Kremmling in previous years, when the once annual event marked the arrival of big game hunting seasons and provided an opportunity for local residents to clear out space in their freezers. Now, after more than a decade without one of the unique supper events, the Kremmling Chamber is bringing it back.
"We are trying to create overnight stays during the off-season," said Shelly McManus, executive director of the Kremmling Chamber. "It seems like everybody does Oktoberfest, and we wanted to do something different and unique that represents Kremmling."
The Roadkill Supper will be held from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday in the Kremmling Town Square, with a menu that is slated to feature wild game lasagna, spaghetti, stew and chili. Organizers will also offer wild boar burgers and pheasant "poppers." The event will feature a beer garden with several local breweries, including Grand Adventure Brewing Co., of Kremmling, The Peak from Winter Park and Never Summer Brewery from Granby, as well as Dillon Dam Brewery, Bakers' Brewery and Broken Compass Brewery, each from Summit County, and O'Dells Brewery.
