Crested Butte Activities
This festival began in 1986 through the efforts of a few insightful Crested Butte locals who envisioned a wildflower celebration in one of the most picturesque valleys in Colorado. The Festival has grown into a summer-long season of events with over 200 classes offered by over 80 instructors, tour guides and volunteers.
We envision an intimate, artistically diverse music festival anchored in a new performing arts center that draws significant audience and support from beyond our valley and is broadly recognized for its excellence. A mission to present an annual festival of diverse music, opera and dance performed by outstanding artists, to inspire a greater appreciation of these art forms, and to help develop the performers of tomorrow.
The official website of Gunnison-Crested Butte which embraces all seasons with events built from a special formula of costumes, sports, music and a big dose of enthusiasm. A ski jump in the middle of downtown? It happens during Big Air on Elk. The annual Alley Loop is the highest-altitude Nordic skiing marathon in the U.S. and certainly the most exuberant.
Referred to as “America’s Race,” spans seven consecutive days, where the world’s top athletes race through the majestic Colorado Rockies. One of the largest cycling events in U.S. history and the largest spectator event in the history of the state, the USA Pro Challenge features a challenging course and the race spotlights the best of the best in professional cycling and some of America’s most beautiful scenery.
