Crested Butte in all its summer glory. 21+ guests can purchase alcoholic beverages, and there's plenty of room for kiddos to play, so bring your lawn chairs or picnic blankets gather around for mid-week music! 

Tonight's concert features Shinyribs! Russell, has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world-class band.

Big Mountain Enduro | August 19 & 20

The series finals for the Big Mountain Enduro Series Presented by Yeti Cycles comes to Crested Butte in 2017. 

This mountain biking competition offers some of the biggest and most challenging terrain in and around these mountainous landscapes and the popular international format of racing encourages spectators to catch the high-speed, adrenaline-fueled action of cross country and downhill mountain biking combined. It's not about who is the first to the climb, or who can drop the sickest line, but rather the best all-around trail rider that can tackle any type of terrain; the fastest. Enduro racing turns an epic all day ride into the ultimate test of fitness and technical skills.
