Submit an Event

When submitting or planning an event please contact the appropriate person(s) in the Permitting and Regulation table below. For Summer events you must have your permits in to the Forest Service by February 15 and the BLM by April 15. Winter event deadlines are August 15 for the Forest Service and September 30 for the BLM.

We are now pulling events from GunnisonValleyCalendar.com!

This is not an automatic upload!

We pull events from gunnisonvalleycalendar.com each Tuesday. If you post your event on a Wednesday it will not appear until the following Tuesday. Please submit your events 2-4 weeks prior to get the exposure you want.

This new resource in the Gunnison Valley was created to help consolidate events for visitors, and to make it easier on organizers when submitting events. Here’s how it works:

  • Go to GunnisonValleyCalendar.com/Submit-An-Event/
  • Add in your event’s information and click Submit at the bottom
  • Gunnison-Crested Butte will pull events from this calendar on a weekly basis so there’s nothing else you need to do!

While the new calendar takes all events in the Gunnison Valley, we are selective about the ones we add to ours. We primarily post tourist-focused events, or events that would add to a tourist’s experience while they’re here in the Valley.

Examples of events we add to our calendar:

Events that we don’t add to our calendar:

  • Events that are targeted at locals
  • Events where drop-ins to a long running class aren’t allowed or recommended.
  • Events that aren’t inclusive or aren’t spectator friendly. Examples include sports camps and meet-ups
