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.
PINK IN THE RINK WOMEN’S HOCKEY TOURNAMENT Every dollar we raise from this tournament goes to the Friends of Pink Program which is designated for financial assistance to individuals to assist with medical expenses, living expenses, travel expenses, house cleaning, lodging, etc. Since 2015, TETWP has granted $160,000.00 to individuals needing financial help while going through breast cancer. It is a tremendous relief of stress for these local women we are helping so they can focus on kicking cancer’s butt! There are lots of ways to participate! Enter as a player, cheer for your favorite team, play Chuck-a-Puck, and come to the Pretty in Pink Dance. Players enter the tournament as an individual and we put together well-balanced teams of 10 or 12 ladies (based on self-ability rankings). Play with friends you know and meet some new ones! REGISTRATION OPENS DECEMBER 1
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!
