Let’s beautify the Butte! Join your neighbors Saturday May 21 st from 9:00am – 12:00pm for the 2022 Town Cleanup! Volunteers will receive a $10 gift card to a local business. Meet at Crested Butte Town Hall at 507 Maroon Avenue at 9:00am to pick up supplies. Don’t dump your junk on the curb! The 4-way dumpster will be available for dropping household items/furniture during Town Cleanup from 9:00am – 12:00pm (items not accepted include concrete, paint, electronics, mattresses, refrigerators, freezers, railroad ties, hazardous materials). Can you recycle that? Sustainable CB’s Recycle Train will be in the CBCS parking lot from 12:00pm- 3:00pm to accept your electronics, 6-Points donations, and other hard-to-recycle items. Information on recyclable items can be found at www.sustainablecb.org.
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!
