11 am | Center for the Arts Steddy Theater Creede Repertory Theatre and the Center are proud to present a theatre production especially for preschool age kids 5 and under! Ms. Joy isn’t particularly joyful. She has a set routine that she sticks to every day. There is a time and place for everything. Until, one day, she receives a surprise visit from an unexpected canine friend, and he turns her routine upside down. Ms. Joy is told through clowning, puppetry, and sound, and teaches students the power of play, friendship, and laughter! Performance runs 25 minutes, ages 5 and under. Suggested donation of $5. No registration needed. Kiddos, family and friends 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!
