Crested Butte 4th of July Fun
I really enjoy the Crested Butte 4th of July Fun Parade in Downtown Crested Butte. It is a special part of Crested Butte and another big party and celebration and an opportunity to dress up – and be proud of our town and our great country.
Throughout the day there will be live music and many delicious food and drink booths, but if that isn’t enough no worries, Elk Avenue is lined with great restaurants with outdoor seating where you can enjoy a meal while watching the parade! Crested Butte prides itself in being different from any other town so during the parade you can expect much laughter, fun and spontaneity like nothing else!
You never quite know what you will see in the parade, there are horses, clowns, dancers, motorcycles, bikes, Rotary Ducks. There are jumps, and zip lines through fire and much more.
Crested Butte 4th of July Parade
Be prepared for Elk Avenue to quickly fill up as people begin to line the street in anticipation of the famous Crested Butte 4th of July parade which begins at 11am. The sidewalks will be flooded with lawn chairs and families, in order to get a good spot on the sidewalk with your family it is advised to set up your lawn chairs or blankets an hour or two before the parade to ensure that you will have a good spot for you and your family.
Crested Butte Fireworks
Usually the night is topped off with 4th of July fireworks on Mt. Crested Butte! Grab a blanket and get a good spot with family and friends to lay out under the stars.

People often ask me “what makes Crested Butte special?”
People often ask me what makes Crested Butte special – there are so many things…, but the Crested Butte parade and Crested Butte 4th of July fun getting to spend time with family and friends is awesome. It is hard to put into words, but the Crested Butte 4th of July fun parade s a big part of the charm of Crested Butte for families whether you are visitors, locals and second homeowners. There are plenty of luxury homes and high-end ski-in / ski-out condos at the base area, but unlike some of the other ski resort towns in Colorado that have their glitsy roots in gold and silver mining – Crested Butte was as a coal mining town. In many ways the character and attitude of the early ranchers and miners has transcended time. In Crested Butte the skiing is great, the scenery is awesome, the recreational activities in the Gunnison Valley are endless, and the people are warm, friendly and real.
