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.
The public is invited to attend and recognize the contributions of the station’s volunteer firefighters and enjoy savory barbecue, side dishes, libations, and live music by Sunny Downpour. There is no cost to attend the fire station event, but donations are being accepted to raise $25,000 for new fire and safety equipment. Those who cannot attend but want to contribute can do so at taylorcanyonfirestation.org/donate.
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!
