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 temps are cold, the days are short, but we’ve got singletrack on the mind! Come celebrate the release of winter alongside our incredible trail community at Gunnison Trails’ 8th Annual Winter Blast! We’ll be celebrating another winter season of grooming trails at Hartman Rocks and sharing our plans for the upcoming trail work season. Held at the University Center Ballroom on the WCU campus, doors open at 5:30pm for Dinner, Libations, Socializing & Huge Silent Auction.
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!
