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.
We invite you to our FREE live music series in our garden area adjacent to the museum, on Tuesdays from 5pm-7pm, July 11th-August 15th. We will have libations and non-alcoholic refreshments for sale, and any donations will directly benefit our local musicians and our non-profit history museum. Billy Jeter’s music comes from a collage of influences, Mississippi Delta blues, Rock n Roll, Ozark folk, Colorado bluegrass and a bit of Grateful Dead campfire type songs mixed in.
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!
