Out There Film Event

June 14 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for an exclusive film screening + music event | “Out There: A National Parks Story” The Oh Be Joyful Gallery invites you to an incredibly special event hosting the award winning feature documentary, Out There: A National Parks Story, in our home of Crested Butte, CO. The film follows two childhood friends embarking on a 10,000 mile road trip through the U.S. national parks to share a profound tapestry of stories from the people they meet along the way. Filmmaker Brendan Hall will be joining us for this inspiring evening, alongside the film’s composer Elizabeth P.W. to a play select original songs from the film’s soundtrack. Out There toured film festivals across the country in 2023, and has been headlined screening events in 2024 including the Explorers Club, the Public Lands Alliance, and Pixar Animation Studios. The screening will also be preceded by the very first screening of a short documentary that director Brendan Hall created following a horse pack trip with artists from Crested Butte’s Oh Be Joyful Gallery. Those artists will be in attendance, giving extra resonance to this moment shared with the community. We expect this event to sell out so secure your tickets early! We look forward to sharing this ode to the natural world with you.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

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!
