Preschool – Kindergarten will be dancing from 2:00pm-2:30pm, then 1st Grade – 5th Grade will be dancing from 2:30pm-3:15pm. Dance students should come prepared with water and masks for when social distancing cannot be achieved. Sarah Stai will be playing the piano accompanying Christmas carols, followed by The Crested Butte Community School Jazz Band performing around 3:30pm to get our guests in the holiday spirit!
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!
