If your idea of fun is to cheer on big, hairy guys in shorts and padded bonnets, Aspen Ruggerfest is the place to be from September 13-16! Now in its 45th season, Aspen Ruggerfest combines brawn, beer, excitement and great cheer as teams from all over the country compete for titles in each division. Not just a sport for the young, some of the most competitive matches occur amongst the “old boys” divisions of over 35, 45 and 55. And there is even a championship game dubbed “Ageless Wonders-Over 60s Match.” Games take place just a few blocks from Aspen Square in Wagner Park as well as Rio Grande Park.
