The Annual Pet Expo is just around the corner!! Join us on Saturday, February 3, 2024 between 10am and 2pm at the Fred Field Center at 275 S Spruce St. Pet providers from all over the valley will be there sharing information on their businesses, providing low cost services such as nail trims and ear cleanings, selling products, and answering questions. You will also be able to register your pet with the city and meet adoptable dogs in the valley. A face painter will be there for the kids as will West Elk Equine who will be giving by donation mini horse and/or donkey rides. And there will be fantastic door prizes once again from the wonderful Pawsitively Native. Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome. Thank you to our sponsors, Ace and Pawsitively Native, for making this event possible!
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!
