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.
Join naturalist and wildlife photographer Arden Anderson as he explores the National Parks and natural areas of the rarely visited country of Bolivia in the heart of South America. From the high Andes to the upper Amazon Basin Arden wandered in search of the rich biodiversity Bolivia has to offer. His spectacular photos will bring alive a place that few of us will ever get to visit. What better way to enjoy a cold winter evening in Gunnison than to dream of travel in a tropical destination.
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!
