Did you know there are many events in Crested Butte and Gunnison? See live music, take an art class, volunteer, play trivia, watch (or participate in) a ski or bike race, and more! Check this calendar to see what’s going on.
The 2nd Improv Rendezvous is a live improv comedy show featuring two troupes! Crested Butte Mountain Theatre’s Subject to Change and CU Boulder’s Left Right TIM Improv Troupe will both display their talent with improv comedy, performing short- and mid-form types of improv. Tickets are available online at www.cbmountaintheatre.org or at the door. Subject to Change is a volunteer improv troupe and has been bringing improv comedy performance and workshops to the Gunnison Valley’s since 2017. Come laugh with them! Or, generally as is the case, at them!
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
