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 for a spooky evening at the museum for stories of spirits past with local storytellers Barbara Mason and Henrietta Raines. Crested Butte and The Gunnison Valley have many stories about hauntings and spirits inhabiting the buildings and spaces around town. With Crested Butte’s rich history in mining, ranching, and more, it has been somewhat of a hotspot for paranormal activity. All ages are welcome, as long as you’re comfortable getting a little bit spooked! Tickets are $30 for members, $35 for non-members, which includes drinks and light snacks. Bring a haunting story of your own to share with the group.
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!
