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 at the Crested Butte Library on Thursday, July 27 from 5-7 pm for July’s Crafternoon. July’s craft will be Paper Marbling. Immediate yet meditative, the craft of marbling can be approached as pattern-making, drawing or an exploration of color. Paper marbling is a centuries-old craft long prized by bookbinders and bibliophiles. Crafternoons are monthly maker-oriented sessions with different projects every month for teens and adults. All supplies and basic instructions are provided.
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!
