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 Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley and Western Colorado University are enthusiastically partnering to present TICtalks: These Wild Lands on the evening of Thursday, September 28 in the University Center Theatre on campus. In this, the fourth installment of TICtalks, we will hear from Western faculty, alum, students and collaborators who all have deep ties to and unique knowledge of the lands that surround us. Four speakers will take the stage individually to present their TICtalks, following which there will be an extended conversation happy hour with the speakers in the University Center Lobby.
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!
