Two-Day Youth Art & Geology Workshop
February 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a two-day workshop exploring geology, history, and art with The Trailhead Children’s Museum. This two-day workshop will explore the history and geology of the Crested Butte and Gunnison area, fun-filled with interactive activities, an art-project, and some outside play. The program lasts from 9am-4pm both days.
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!
