Purim in the Mountains
March 19, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
B'nai Butte is excited to invite the community to our first Purim festival, Purim in the Mountains, in quite a few years! We are in the process of securing live music, and will have a number of carnival-style booths for children and adults to enjoy, including face painting and hamantaschen cookie decorating. In the spirit of the Gunnison Valley, we will have a costume competition for all ages! I'd like to invite you and your readers to these après-ski festivities on Saturday, March 19th at Jerry's Gym from 4-6PM.
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!
