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 an evening out at the Magic Meadows Yurt for a historic dinner catered by Crested Butte Personal Chefs. Ski or snowshoe out to the yurt, where you’ll be welcomed by a fire, food, a selection of tasty drinks, and historians. Enjoy a delicious meal with beer, wine, cocktails, or mocktails, learn about the history of Crested Butte and The Gunnison Valley (specific topic still to be determined), and ski or snowshoe back to the trailhead under the stars and the beautiful moonlit mountains surrounding our 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!
