Beach Party Rave
Kowabunga! It's time to get your beach party booty shaking. DJ BREK.ONE is manning the turntables for this epic slopeside party to kick off Spring Festival. Wear your beachiest garb, grab a glow stick, and enjoy a bonfire, fire dancers, and an outdoor bar.
Live Music from the Ball Brothers Band
To get down with some serious live rock-n-roll, local legends The Ball Brothers Band will be raising the roof upstairs in the White Cap Lodge!
Live music from Singepole Mountain Band
After earning a must-see reputation on the summer festival circuit, the local Singepole Mountain Band is known for their experimental, high-energy dance jazz.
3rd Annual Slip 'n' Flip
There has never been a more epic competition than the Slip 'n' Flip, where 16 teams consisting of five members each slide their way to victory on Sunday River's slopes. In a relay fashion, one competitor from each team will race down the slip and slide course until they reach a table at the bottom. At the table, they'll down a cup of alcohol-free Spring Fest punch, and then flip the empty cup so it's standing upright. Once they successfully complete the flip, the next competitor can leave the start at the top of the course until all five teammates from one team finishes! The competition will then take all of the winners from each heat, and they will compete until the last team is standing! Registration is open and entry is $10 per team. All proceeds will go to the Sunday River Community Fund.
Live music from Spencer Albee
After spending time with both the Rustic Overtones and As Fast As, and working with such legends as David Bowie and producers Tony Visconti, David Leonard, and Matt Wallace, Spencer Albee and his six-piece band is inventive and applause-worthy.
Everyone's favorite bartending competition is back! During the Margarita Mix-Off, local watering holes put their mixes to the taste test for the coveted title of Best Margarita, voted by a panel of celebrity judges, and the People's Choice Award. And you won't see just the typical salt and lime; these margaritas blend new flavors, spices, and garnishes into delicious concoctions. Samples cost $1 per drink and proceeds benefit the Sunday River Community Fund.
Live music from El Grande
A fixture in the Portland, Maine, music scene, El Grande boasts an attitude fueled by rock and roll with punk ethics, giving life to their own brand of ska. This high-energy show, mixed with those potent signature Pain Killer drinks, will have you dancing well into the evening.
