The mission of the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival is to advocate for the preservation and appreciation of wildflowers. 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 300 events offered by over 60 instructors, tour guides and volunteers.
Come to Crested Butte to enjoy the beautiful scenery. There are numerous activities throughout the festival – van tours, hikes, art classes, birding & butterflies, botany & medicinal lectures, edibles, garden tours, walks, photography classes and much more! Visit the event website for more details.
