What could be better than opera and chocolate? Local favorite Elizabeth Bond returns to the Crested Butte with a delectable selection of tasty tunes in this dazzling, one-night-only production. Act One is a cabaret-style buffet of delicious ditties; in Act Two, Victoria Hansen stars as Julia Child, taking center stage following to deliver operatic instruction on how to prepare her famous Chocolate Gâteau. Guests will enjoy a slice of cake at the end of the production as the melodies and memories of France carry them home.
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!
