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.
In this class students will learn how to put together their own bracelet and necklace set. Students will work with natural materials such as leaves, sand and feathers to create a design of their choice. Once the design is set in place a glass cabochon will be glued on using E6000 glue. The pieces will be ready to pick up the following day once the glue has hardened. *E6000 glue toxicity disclaimer up on the website. Instructor: Chelsea Hoitt, $40/person, $34/member
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!
