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.
Shows February 23-25 and March 2-4. Tickets $20 on Thursdays, $25 on Fridays and Saturdays. SonofaGunn 2023 goes meta as we find our four writers navigating the trials and tribulations of writing and producing a community theater production. We go behind the scenes to see what it’s really like to write the perfect sketch, cast the right actors, and choose the catchiest songs, all in an effort to write the greatest and best play in the world.
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!
