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.
Let’s get away for the weekend and go tour Colorado’s Wine Country! Beat the off-season blues with a fabulous weekend trip to the North Fork Valley! We’ll enjoy a comfortable (and very scenic) drive to Colorado’s Wine Country, stopping for lunch along the way, and then visiting 3-4 wineries in Paonia and Hotchkiss. After a day of wine tasting we’ll stop for dinner (location TBD) and then wind down with a glass of wine and enjoy the cozy firepit at our lovely airbnb in Crawford. Sunday we’ll enjoy breakfast and then head out to a couple more wineries before heading back to the Gunnison Valley.
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!
