Crested Butte Community School Spring Fling
April 7 @ 8:00 pm$35 – $40
Crested Butte Community School’s Spring Fling, the annual PTA school fundraiser, at the Public House features the genre-bending powerhouse The Sweet Lillies. At first glance, The Sweet Lillies look like your typical Americana string band- upright bass, viola, acoustic guitar, the occasional washboard. But give a listen and you’ll hear a melting pot of sounds, just like America, that include all of the members’ roots and influences, including rock, funk, hip hop and rap. All proceeds benefit the Crested Butte Community School. Drinks, Dancing and Live Auction. Spring break inspired costumes encouraged. To sponsor this event, please contact Emily Henkel at [email protected]
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!
