Our historic pub crawls are among some of our patrons favorite events. Each pub crawl features 3 different drinking establishments or historic buildings in downtown Crested Butte. The tour lasts about 2 hours and includes a drink at each location, and stories and history from local historians at each location. Commemorative pub mugs are available for purchase with your ticket. Space is limited, and our crawls are only offered a few times a year, so make sure to get tickets before it sells out. This event is 21 and up, we will ask for proof of identification before the start of the event. This crawl is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20th from 5:30pm-7:30pm. The locations will be The Dogwood (Irwin building history & history of that building after it was moved into town), The Secret Stash (The Company Store history), and one more TBA location!
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!
