Most resort towns around these parts want you to visit this time of year, except for Crested Butte this weekend. That’s because the town of 1,500 will more than double in population as celebrities, major music acts and free beer will be on tap. It’s all part of an event for a Bud Light ad campaign. Chad Reich is program director at KBUT. He spoke to Aspen Public Radio’s Rob St. Mary about how his station, along with local police, are urging people who don’t live in Gunnison County, and who are not invited to the party, to stay home.
If you have reservations for any other events, weddings, or vacations in Crested Butte, those are still valid. Hikers, bikers and campers are welcome, but you cannot attend the event.
If you have any questions, contact the Crested Butte Town Hall at 970-349-5338.
