Our historic pub crawls are among some of our patrons favorite events. This pub crawl will feature 3 different establishments on Mt. Crested Butte with historians at each location. The tour lasts about 2 hours and includes a drink at each location, and stories and history from local historians at each location. Commemorative pub mugs are available for purchase with your ticket. Space is limited, and our crawls are only offered a few times a year, so make sure to get tickets before it sells out. This event is 21 and up, we will ask for proof of identification before the start of the event. This pub crawl will be located near the base area of Mt. Crested Butte (not the town of Crested Butte). Free transportation is provided by mountain express from town to the mountain. Please do not drink and drive! Historians and Locations to be Announced!
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!
