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.
It’s time to start thinking about and planning for summer adventures! Join us at the Gunnison Library on Thursday, March 9th at 6pm for a workshop with Intentional Adventures founder Katy Smith. Intentional Adventures offers wellness-focused, retreat-like wilderness backpacking trips. In this workshop, we’ll work through setting an Adventure Goal to get out of your comfort zone and adventure with more intention this year! You’ll leave feeling inspired to take action by building a training plan for yourself. Focusing on taking action toward your goal will keep you motivated during mud-season and beyond!
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!
