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.
Yup, we got sucked back into the Game of Thrones world too! And it felt unfair for only our staff to enjoy CGI dragons on the big screen, so we are inviting everyone out the next three Sundays to catch the latest episode of House of the Dragon. Sundays. 7:30 pm. Dragons. Free. 18+ (obviously). Don’t sneak in concessions – just do us a solid and buy a bag of popcorn to support your local, nonprofit movie theater. If we catch you with outside concessions, we are going to watch back old GOT episodes to figure out how Daenerys Targaryen would punish you.
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!
