4th of July

The 4th of July in Crested Butte is a patriotic celebration full of music, food, races, and fun. Join us this year to celebrate America’s birthday with the country’s biggest small town celebration. We don’t wait until the 4th to start the celebrations. Things will kick off on Friday the third and run through the 4th. The 5th is a perfect day for hiking, biking, fishing, or swimming in the mountains around Crested Butte.

A float in the parade is a great way to advertise your business or cause. With estimated crowds for the parade this year in the 12,000- 15,000 range, you’ll have a lot of eyes on you as you march down Elk. Plus, we’ll announce your business as you hit 3rd and Elk right by the food court. A General float costs $40, “marching band” style floats are free, and a political float will run you $200. To register your float in the parade, please download and fill out the parade registration form and submit it with payment for your float (if applicable) no later than July 1st.

The food court at 3rd and Elk Avenue is popular with the hungry people who have just run the 8 miles into town from Gothic as well as the folks who slept in and missed the pancake breakfast and people enjoying day two of the One World Music Festival. Rates are affordable (Chamber members: $100, Local Non-Chamber members: $200, Non-Gunnison County vendors: $250). To reserve a tent, download the vendor registration form and submit it to the chamber with payment no later than June 27th.
