GunnisonValleyCalendar.com Offers New Valley-Wide Events Listings


 
Several area organizations have teamed up to introduce a new regional events calendar known as GunnisonValleyCalendar.com. The goal is to make it easier to share upcoming events in the valley, from Crested Butte to Gunnison, through a single website, instead of having organizations post to multiple calendars. Consider underwriting to expose your event details to a wider listening audience with more frequency at kbut.org/underwriting.
​Participants include:
  • KBUT Community Radio,
  • The Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce,
  • The Crested Butte Creative District,
  • The Gunnison Country Chamber of Commerce and the
  • Gunnison-Crested Butte Tourism Association. 
The Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Calendar website and calendar is generously hosted and supported at no charge by Thin Air Web, serving Crested Butte and beyond since 1998.

JOKERVILLE ANNIVERSARY PRESENTATION BY LARRY MCDON
Add to your calendar
Date: January 24, 6:00 pm-7:30am
Continues Until:
Location: Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum
Details: Join us for the 135th anniversary of the Jokerville Mine Disaster, the greatest mining tragedy to occur in our valley. Local historian Larry McDonald has uncovered many mysteries about the event, and details about some of the victims and their lives, which are included in a historical pictorial book he recently completed. Which victim was a convicted killer working under an assumed name? Why were boys as young as 12 working in the mine? Was the miner told not to enter the gas-filled chamber, and subsequently accused of igniting the explosion, really deaf? If you are interested in learning about this important local historical event, and would like to honor the men and boys who perished on that frigid morning in 1884, please join us at the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum at 4th and Elk on Thursday, January 24th from 6-7:30pm. Free admission, donations are greatly appreciated.
