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.

Date: August 19, 7:00 pm-8:00pm
Continues Until:
Location: Crested Butte Library
Details: Roger Kahn’s book, “How Crested Butte Became a Tourist Town: Drugs, Sex, Sports, Arts, and Social Conflict” is a fun-filled social history that is based on extensive research including 75 two-six hour interview/conversations with a wide range of “locals” who lived in town from the mid-1960’s through the late ’70’s. Until now, what happened in Crested Butte stayed in Crested Butte, but importantly, what transpired in Crested Butte also occurred in most tourist towns and recreation communities at our nation’s seacoasts, in the mountains, and even in our deserts as they all emerged in the affluent post WWII years. Collectively, they gave rise to our nation’s newest form of cosmopolitan living –the “recreation exurbs.” As such, Crested Butte turned out to be a case study of a much larger phenomena.
