Crested Butte Mountain High Music
I am super excited to attend the 5th Annual Crested Butte Mountain High Music Festival with my wife Francene again this year. This is a special Crested Butte event. We got two Passes for the The Crested Butte Mountain High Music Fest that give us a wrist band for all three nights.
I can’t wait.
If you attended any of the evenings in the past – you will know how cool it is to be in a very small venue, with big talent.
Mountain High Music Festival 2020 Dates
January 16th – 18th, 2020 in Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado
The songwriters and singers are always very happy to be here in Crested Butte, and it is supercool to listen to their stories, and of course hear them sing their songs. We laugh and sing, and stand and cheer, and dance to some great country music in Crested Butte.
Dean Dillon is the inspiration and drive behind this great event. Dean and his wife Susie own a ranch here in the Gunnison Valley. As an award winning songwriter Dean Dillon has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and written many many number one songs for George Strait, George Jones, Lee Ann Womack, and Toby Keith among others.
Because of Dean Dillon these top songwriters and singers come here to Crested Butte to perform, have a great time – and help raise money that stays in the Gunnison Valley.
The two non-profit partners this year are Cattlemen’s Days Tough Enough to Wear Pink (supporting Breast Cancer treatment services and equipment at the Gunnison Hospital), and Adaptive Sports Center – giving people with disabilities the opportunity to experience the outdoors in Crested Butte.
My wife Francene and I have attended the Mountain High Music Fest for many years – and I have volunteered and “worked security” in the past for the VIP event.
As a regular listener to Sirius/XM Radio and The Highway it is neat to meet and talk with one if the long-time DJs Storme Warren who has a place in his heart for Crested Butte. He is originally from Tulsa, OK and has been coming here for 25 years.

What makes Crested Butte special?
People often ask me “What makes Crested Butte special?” It is always hard to put into words, but being having a destination event like the Crested Butte Mountain High Music Festival is one of the very cool Crested Butte things. It is great to sit in the audience and talk with the artists and attendees of this event rave about the beauty, and the character and charm of Crested Butte. They immediately recognized what we know – that the setting, the events and most of all the people make Crested Butte a cool, fun and quality place to be.
The Crested Butte Mountain Lifestyle
The Crested Butte mountain lifestyle means something different to every person. In general, it is a more laid-back feel than the big city. Conversations you will have at the end of the day will be about the great adventures and fun times you had, and what excursion is on the schedule for tomorrow.
In a mountain town the pace is slower, and it is not unusual to sit on a bench on Elk Avenue in town next to a stranger and find yourself in a wonderful conversation. Mountain towns attract a diverse demographic, and the socio-economic and political views of some may differ from yours. There is also diversity in the many seasonal recreational activities, as well as interesting performing arts in mountain towns.
When you start to look at the calendar of events, you will be surprised at how many are available. Most of the things you will find yourself doing are not options in your primary residence locale (or those of your family and guests).
The quality of the lifestyle and the amenities in our town is one of the pillars our our tourism economy and what makes Crested Butte special. Our visitors get excited about a strong arts culture, and giving back through capital campaigns to build a new facility, supporting local non-profits, and getting involved…
In addition to the permanent residents who enjoy the performances and events, many visitors and second homeowners realize that the value of Crested Butte Real Estate is tied to the amenities in the Crested Butte area – and events like the Crested Butte Mountain High Music Festival and the Arts are key.
