4th of July in Crested Butte

July 4, 2019

The 4th of July in Crested Butte is a patriotic celebration full of music, food, races, and fun. Join us this year to celebrate America’s birthday with the country’s biggest small town festival.
Get here early or stay late to enjoy a weekend of hiking, biking, fishing, or swimming in the mountains around Crested Butte while enjoying the festivities on Elk Ave!

A float in the parade is a great way to advertise your business or cause. With estimated crowds in the 9,000- 12,000 range, you’ll have a lot of eyes on you as you march down Elk. Plus, we’ll announce your business as you hit 3rd and Elk right by the food court. A general float/group costs $50, marching bands are free, and a political float will run you $200.
