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.
Crested Butte Mountain Theatre’s Subject to Change Improv Troupe brings the laughter to the Mallardi Cabaret Theatre with family-friendly comedy suitable for folks of all ages. Shows are Saturdays, February 4 and 11 at 5 PM. Kids love the interaction of shouting out suggestions and sometimes being invited on stage to participate. Tickets are available online at www.cbmountaintheatre.org or at the door. Bring your suggestions and be prepared to chuckle, giggle, and roar. Subject to Change is a volunteer improv troupe and has been bringing improv comedy performance and workshops to the Gunnison Valle since 2017.
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!
