December 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

Free

Join us at the museum with Pete Dunda on the accordion to show off your best polka skills on December 28th from 4pm-6pm, festive outfits are encouraged! During the mining days of Crested Butte and many other mountain towns in Colorado, immigrants from Croatia, Slovenia, and other countries brought the music and sounds to their new homes. Polka has a deep history in Crested Butte and was a way for the locals at the time to wind down and enjoy themselves. Join us for a fun filled evening of this traditional style of music and dancing! The museum will have beverages available for purchase. This event is free, however we encourage a donation to the museum to keep this type of programming accessible for everyone.

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!
