WE ARE THE

WILDFLOWER CAPITAL OF COLORADO!

Surround yourself in the symphony of wildflowers that is Crested Butte.
Since 1986, we’ve hosted the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, sharing Mother Nature’s colors with flower-lovers in fun, fresh ways.

In-Person Events for the 2020 Festival Are Canceled

We are heartbroken to have to announce that in-person events for this year’s Festival have been canceled. All participants who had registered for an in-person event have already been notified by email. We will update this space with details about the event cancellations and plans moving forward as they become available. ⁠ ⁠

As always, we thank you for your support of the Festival. The best interests of our wonderful community of members, participants, event leaders, and friends are at the heart of every decision we make. We look forward to communicating further information to you as soon as we can.
