Raise Your Glass for the 26th Annual Champagne Cascade

Completed PyramidKick off the holiday season at the 26th Annual Champagne Cascade on Sunday, November 3rd in the Brown Palace Atrium.

With the swift swipe of an antique Napoleonic saber, a master swordsman will sever the necks of Moet et Chandon champagne bottles. Once opened, the bubbly is carefully poured into the uppermost glass of a 6,000-glass pyramid towering two stories high in the hotel’s stunning atrium lobby.

More information on the fundraising efforts associated with this event will be released later this month including detailed information about the organization and the connection to the Brown Palace.

The Champagne Cascade, which starts at noon, is open to the public on floors four through seven and will feature live jazz and entertainment. Exclusive VIP tickets will be available for purchase and offer views from the mezzanine level and include unlimited champagne, beer, wine, hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

To make reservations for VIP viewing, guests can visit www.brownpalace.com to purchase tickets.

Holidays At The Brown Palace – Guess The Number of Teddy Bears


The Brown Palace is bringing on the holiday cheer with our Big Bear Giveaway. Guess the exact number of teddy bears in the window located at our hotel by scanning its QR code or by following the mobile-link, both of which are located on the display. The individual that guesses the number closest to the exact amount of bears will not only receive a complimentary stay at The Brown Palace, but will also choose which charity the toys will be donated this holiday season. So come on down and start guessing!

24th Annual Champagne Cascade at The Brown Palace

Here at The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, we invite you to join us for our 24th Annual Champagne Cascade on Sunday, November 13th at noon.  At this iconic event, we will feature a master swordsman who will use an antique Napoleonic saber to sever the bottle necks of Moet & Chandon Champagne bottles.  Then, we will pour the bubbling drink into the uppermost glass of the 6,000-glass pyramid raising almost two stories in our beautiful Atrium Lobby.  Open to the public, we encourage those who are interested to come and view the spectacle from floors four through seven and watch the champagne flow.  We will also be donating 100% of the proceeds from our VIP ticket sales to Volunteers of America, as well as collecting children’s toys for the organization’s annual Christmas Basket program.  Attendees donating items will be automatically entered for a chance to win great prizes, including spa treatments, dining experiences and overnight stays.

Following the Cascade, we will be holding a contest for the public to guess the amount of teddy bears used to fill a window display at the hotel. The winner that guesses the closest number to the amount of bears in the display will be able to choose the children’s organization where the bears will be donated.

To get a sense of what this event is all about, check out the footage from last year’s Cascade in the video below….but we can promise you that seeing the overflowing champagne over thousands of glasses on video is absolutely nothing to viewing it in person!  We hope to see you there!
