It seems there is always a reason to celebrate in Crested Butte. You can plan your visit almost any time of the year and there is bound to be something going on in or around town.
During the winter months, while the ski area is open, there are many activities on the ski mountain including ski and snowboard competitions, holiday celebrations, the annual Christmas parade, and much more.
Summer is not an off-season for the area. After the Crested Butte Mountain Resort Ski Area closes, Spring and Summer events are launched with the Flauschink parade and weekend of celebration. This is soon followed by national kayaking competitions on the raging rivers around town, The Wildflower Festival, and much, much more. Check out the listing of events below to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun!
