As if the natural wonders are not enough, the Gunnison River Territory serves up a varied feast of events all year long. Mountain bikers will find numerous competitions held throughout the year, as well as Fat Tire Bike Week held annually in Crested Butte. For the armchair cowboy, Gunnison annually hosts Cattleman's Days, the oldest rodeo in the West. Winter brings the Extreme Skiing Championships to Crested Butte. Cultural events are also held throughout the year, with summer concerts and art festivals bringing some of the finest musicians and artists in the country to the territory.
