24th Annual Mt. Crested Butte Chili and Beer Festival

The Crested Butte Chamber’s Mt. Crested Butte Chili & Beer Festival features over 2 dozen Colorado breweries each year and a delicious local Chili cook-off complete with live music. Taking place at the base area in beautiful Mount Crested Butte, Colorado.

Ticket holders enjoy unlimited tastings from over two dozen breweries and cideries and over 60 different types of beer and ciders from around the world. VIP ticket holders receive additional exclusive access to over 15 reserve and speciality beers and ciders, and access to the event an hour early.


Please note: Chili & Beer is NOT a dog-friendly event. Dogs on leashes are welcome in Mt. Crested Butte and the Crested Butte Mountain Resort base area, but will not be permitted inside the Chili & Beer Festival venue.

While Crested Butte is a very dog-friendly community, the density of people inside the Chili & Beer Festival venue makes allowing dogs very challenging to manage.

Kids 12 and under are welcome and free to get into the Festival! Kids 12 and older will need to purchase a “chili only” ticket at checkout.
Thank you for understanding!
