From the large to the quaint, Crested Butte has a meeting space for you – be it the Grand Ballroom (5,000 square feet) at Mountaineer Square at the ski area base or the intimate, authentic spaces at The Ruby – a luxury bed and breakfast in the heart of downtown.

For special events, Crested Butte offers up something unique all year round, be it The Peoples Fair in fall, the Night of Lights and the Holiday Bazaar in winter, concerts in the spring, or the Wildflower Festival, the Crested Butte Arts Festival, and Cattleman’s Days – America’s oldest rodeo – in summer.
