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.
We’re excited to share about the Crested Butte screening of @go_on_be_brave – the story of one woman’s race against time. This inspiring film follows Andrea Lytle Peet’s journey through a diagnosis of ALS and an attempt at the impossible – to be the first person with ALS to complete a marathon in all 50 states. Andrea declared her goal in Year 5 of her ALS diagnosis…right before a pandemic shut down all races. Go On, Be Brave is not just a “sports” or “disease” documentary. It inspires the audience to answer a universal question… What does it mean to truly live? Follow Andrea’s journey on @teamdreafoundation as she inspires others. Purchase tickets and view the trailer at GoOnBeBrave.com
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!
