This year Mt. Crested Butte hosts One Good Weekend. The new event adds two days of fun to the existing Mt. Crested Butte Chili and Beer Festival. The weekend long event offers everything a great festival needs – food, drinks, interesting people, music, a great mountain setting and now… mountain biking! Basically every festival in the Crested Butte area is amazing, but One Good Weekend is setting up to be especially awesome. The Chili and Beer festival is a staple on the Crested Butte calendar. Attendees enjoy what seems like countless options for everything from traditional Texas beef chili to New Mexican green chili, which is served alongside every type of beer you can imagine – all from local businesses and individuals. This year, lift served mountain biking at the Evolution Bike Park, two additional nights of music and fun and the opportunity to ride with some local mountain biking legends will elevate the experience to new heights. From the One Good Weekend official website, here is the schedule:

  • Friday Evening Welcome Party: Red Lady Stage at Evolution Bike Park. Featuring Rapidgrass Quintet. 5:30-8 PM. Free Beer for all festival attendees.
