Crested Butte is known as the wildflower capital of the world, and its Wildflower Festival is often referred to as the best annual festival in the mountains. Taking place in the beginning of July, this festival celebrates the amazing beauty of Crested Butte.
This weeklong botanical celebration honors Crested Butte’s designation as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado. Walking and hiking tours through mountain meadows, national forests and the narrow alleys of Crested Butte’s old historic district bring you face-to-face with the magnificent native flora that prompted this declaration. The annual festival offers workshops, tours, lectures and slide shows. Classes include learning to identify, photograph, paint, draw, cook, plant and heal with wildflowers.
