Taste of Crested Butte 2013

The 2013 Taste of Crested Butte (formerly known as Crested Butte Restaurant Week) takes place Jun 19 – 22, 2013 in Downtown Crested Butte.


Look for specials at participating Restaurants during the Taste of Crested Butte.

Step out and experience some local color at Friday night’s cocktail challenge. Bars and restaurants will feature their cocktail contenders all week in an effort to be one of two finalists in the Friday face-off. Arrive ready to sample, vote, and cheer on your favorite bartender as they put their skills to the test slinging some of CB’s finest spirits. Costumes encouraged – it’s sure to win you something in this town!

Saturday night, diners will participate in a progressive dinner.  Your evening will begin in one of the town’s many parks with a welcome cocktail and gorgeous mountain views.  While sipping Crested Butte featured cocktails, participants will be given a ticket revealing the first of three stops on their tour.  Each subsequent course will be revealed by clue  enabling diners to navigate from one fine dining experience to the next.   Sign up as a single or bring a gang – there will be no shortage of friends and fun along the way.

Visit the Taste of Crested Butte website for more information or to purchase Special Event tickets.
