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.
Please join us at the Gunnison Library on Saturday, June 24 from 10:30 AM – 12 PM for this year’s Family Reading Rodeo. Saddle up for an extra-special story time featuring our very own Cattlewomen’s Association! Make your own pool noodle pony, wrangle balloons, and design a cowboy/cowgirl bandana. If you’re interested in this event but unable to attend, we will also host Reading Rodeo at the Crested Butte Library on Sunday, June 25 at 1:30 PM.
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!
