Crested Butte Arts Festival

August 3, 2018 @ 12:00 am - August 5, 2018 @ 12:00 am


The Crested Butte Arts Festival produces an annual, nationally recognized Festival presenting a broad spectrum of the arts, whose proceeds perpetuate the Festival and also provide for year-round, sustainable arts outreach programs for the community of the Gunnison Valley.

Now in its 46th year, the Crested Butte Arts Festival features incredible art, fantastic cuisine, exhilarating entertainment, artist demonstrations, children’s activities and an art auction.

Open-air booths line the five-block center of Crested Butte’s National Historic District, featuring artists who are selected through a very competitive jury process.  In addition to the well-loved “Art Alley” for kids ages 2 – 12, the festival features an artist demonstration tent, food court, beer and wine pavilion!
