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.
Come and participate in a unique two-day workshop focusing on Wilderness First Aid & Survival! We’re thrilled to present this course at the start of summer, ensuring you’re well-prepared for your upcoming wilderness adventures, be it fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or hunting. Accidents can occur, and encountering someone in distress is a possibility. Acquiring fundamental first aid and survival skills is essential to be prepared for such scenarios! The fist portion of class will be held in the classroom at the Gunnison Public Library. After that we will be camping out on location in beautiful Gunnison County, so please bring any gear you will need to comfortably spend the night in camp. Please visit our website for additional details and to register! https://unchartedoutdoorswomen.com/shop/404
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!
