2019 Crested Butte Wine & Food Festival Registration

July 25-28

The Crested Butte Wine and Food Festival is an annual four-day epicurean celebration that brings world-class chefs, winemakers, brewers, distillers, sommeliers, and spirits experts together in one of the most scenic, captivating, and charming towns in Colorado. This destination event provides incredible eating and drinking experiences to over 2,000 affluent attendees and industry representatives through fine dining winemakers’ dinners and lunches, seminars, and Reserve + Grand Tastings.

There are many opportunities available throughout the festival that can be tailored to fit your marketing and financial goals, including sampling product to guests at the Grand and Reserve tastings, seminars, and a small number of high-profile dinners and lunches; custom event integration; and event sponsorship. For more information on sponsor packages and benefits, please contact Festival Director Jillian Liebl at jillian@crestedbuttearts.org or (970) 349-7487 x702.

New in 2019, the Crested Butte Wine and Food Festival is working with TasteSeller LLC to build an app for the festival. TasteSeller has also built apps for Taste of Vail, Denver Food and Wine, and the Breckenridge Wine Classic among others. Information that you enter on this registration page will sync directly with the app to give patrons a user-friendly listing of all the wineries, breweries, and distributors at the festival, as well as all the wines, beers, and spirits that are poured at each event. Users can save their favorites and order them directly from Mountain Spirits Liquors in Crested Butte.
