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 us as we explore pubs and historic buildings in the town of Crested Butte for stories of the past while you enjoy libations. This pub crawl will feature storytellers Barbara Mason, Henrietta Raines, Kay & Donnie Cook, & Carol Connor sharing ghost stories in our community. We will be visiting The Red Room, Kochevar’s, and The Daily Dose where you’ll enjoy an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage at each 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!
