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.
Join Crested Butte Friends of the Library (CBFOL) and Sommelier Aaron Tomcak for one, two, or all three wine tastings each summer. These are fun and educational evenings that allow you to do some good, too! Sponsored by CBFOL, these events raise funds for the Crested Butte Library’s programs and materials. All three tastings are on Thursdays throughout the summer – July 6, August 3, and August 31. Each wine tasting costs $50 to attend, and tickets are available at Old Rock Library or by emailing Ashley at [email protected]. Doors open at 5:30, and the tastings start at 6; we hope to see you there!
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!
