Local Events

Crested Butte hosts a number of unique festivals, parades, and events throughout the year and 95% of them involve dressing up- come prepared with your costumes! Below are a list of my favorite Crested Butte annual events but please remember to always check the local Crested Butte Newspaper for the upcoming events, activities, concerts, etc. that will be happening during your stay.  You can find physical newspapers at most establishments in downtown or if you would like to browse the paper online please visit crestedbuttenews.com
