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.
Project Hope, in partnership with Townie Books, is inviting ALL BOOK CLUBS in the Crested Butte and Gunnison communities to read the same book together during the month of October. Finding community and strength in storytelling can play a key role in both individual and community healing from gender-based violence. All are invited to the community-wide gathering and panel discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 pm at the Crested Butte Center for the Arts.
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!
