Immerse yourself in the spirit of the season as you join us for a unique experience crafting your very own holiday wreath. We will provide everything you need to design a wreath that reflects your style and captures the magic of the holidays. Your local flower farmer-florist, Annie, will offer tips and inspiration to help you create a wreath that will be the envy of all your neighbors. Choose from a wide array of high-quality materials, including fragrant evergreen branches, berries, vibrant ribbons, sparkling bells, and more. Whether you prefer a traditional look with classic red and green elements or want to explore a more contemporary, whimsical design, the possibilities are endless. No prior crafting experience is necessary- our workshop is designed for participants of all skill levels. Bring your friends, family, or come solo and make new friends in a warm and welcoming environment. It’s the perfect way to kick off the holiday season!
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!
