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.
Gunnison Valley Animal Welfare League’s Annual Yard Sale will be Saturday, August 20, 2022 from 9:30am until 1:00pm on the lawn of the Community Church of Gunnison located at 107 N. Iowa. Most items will be “name your price” with select items being priced. All proceeds go to GVAWL. If you would like to donate to this fundraiser, donations may be dropped off at the warehouse at 405 S. 12th St on the alley side on Wednesday, August 17 or Thursday, August 18th between 2pm and 5pm. We appreciate all donations in good or great condition but are unable to accept clothing, electronics, mattresses, and large furniture unless approved in advance. Baked goods will also be accepted to be sold at donation and can be dropped off at the yard sale the morning of the event between 9:15 and 9:30am or at the shelter on Friday, August 19th between 4 and 7pm.
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!
