2019 Crested Butte Wildflower Festival
The Wildflower Festival began in 1986 through the efforts of a few insightful Crested Butte locals who envisioned a wildflower celebration in one of the most picturesque valleys in Colorado. The Festival has grown into a summer-long season with over 300 events offered by over 60 instructors, tour guides and volunteers.
The mission of the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival is to advocate for the preservation and appreciation of wildflowers.
