The Crested Butte Wildflower Festival is an annual 10-day Festival offering over 200 workshops in wildflower expertise each July, be it painting, pollination, photography, culinary arts, or leading hikes into the wild beyond in the heart of the Wildflower Capital of Colorado, Crested Butte. Our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was founded in 1986 to celebrate the beauty of the montane and alpine wildflower environments in and around the Gunnison Valley. Today we continue to advocate for the preservation and appreciation of wildflowers and instill both awareness and admiration of our interdependence with our natural wildflower habitats through our events.
We have not finalized the exact dates for 2023, but the Festival will run during the week of July 7-16. We will publish the exact dates around Thanksgiving/ late December. The 2023 Program Guide will be available in March and Member registration will begin mid-late March, followed by general registration shortly afterwards. *If you have specific events you would like to register for or are traveling to get here, we highly recommend becoming a Member to secure your spot with early registration*
