Oats and Corn!
The finalé of the annual Vinotok festival will be this weekend in Crested Butte. The community feast is Friday and everyone is welcome. The forecast calls for a wet Saturday so dress dry and warm to see if the Grump is let free or burned. Spoiler Alert: The bonfire will be at the Visitor’s Center parking lot at Sixth and Elk.
Crested Butte kudos
We don’t mention every time Crested Butte is mentioned in the national press or on a worldwide website but this one is unusual. The Huffington Post recently ran a piece on the “Best Library in Every State” and for Colorado the selection was…The Crested Butte Library. BTW-we miss the ‘Old Rock’ moniker. It noted that the building was “surrounded by craggy mountaintops, this sandstone beauty was originally built in 1883 as a schoolhouse.” And just because we saw this today, CarRentals.com named Crested Butte as one of the most gorgeous fall towns in North America.
