Community Feast and Water Fair

Add to your calendar
Date: September 4, 4:30 pm
Location: Totem Pole Park
Details:

Join local non-profits in a spirit of cooperation as we celebrate World Water Week in the Gunnison Valley.


Enjoy a “progressive meal” under the stars, right in the heart of town, and find out how by working together, we can keep our streams, rivers and drinking water healthy and pure. Visit each non-profit booth for a component of the locally-sourced meal. Enjoy the acoustic melodies of local musicians, a water-inspired kids zone, as well as a "health of the watershed" update. Bring your own eating vessel, and a picnic blanket to share with friends. This is a zero waste event. Montanya cocktails will be on hand for purchase, as well as beer, provided by Acme Liquor. All funds raised go to local non-profit initiatives.

Participating organizations: High Country Citizen's Alliance, Coal Creek Watershed Coalition, Office for Resource Efficiency, Crested Butte Farmers Market, 1% for Open Space, Mountain Roots Food Project, American Whitewater, Lake Fork Valley Conservancy, Western Hardrock Watershed Team, Upper Gunnison River Water Conservation District, Water For People, Trout Unlimited, The Water Center at Colorado Mesa University, and Colorado Foundation for Water Education.
