Blessing of the Animals and Holy Euchatist
October 2 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pmfree
All Saints in the Mountains Episcopal Church invites you to celebrate your animal friends and have them blessed at the Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 2 at 403 Maroon Ave (UCC) in Crested Butte. Animals are allowed in the church, so bring your furry, fuzzy, creepy, crawly, swimming friends to have them blessed at the Sunday service. If having your pet with you presents a problem, bring a picture! Everyone is welcome.
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!
