Back by popular demand! Red Lady Films will present two showings of “High Country,” the engaging story of Crested Butte’s 1970s and ’80s history. “High Country” will show at the Majestic on March 14 and 15, with proceeds to benefit High Country Conservation Advocates and Coal Creek Watershed Coalition, two organizations working to protect our local environment. Come out on either night to show your support for HCCA and CCWC, Doors 6:00 pm | Film 6:30 pm. Tickets at cbmajestic.org.
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!
