Culinary Arts

The Center hosts culinary arts classes year-round, with a special focus on wine + spirits tasting and pairing. Since 2002, the Center has held Tour de Forks fundraising dinners in the stunning summer months with impressive local, regional, and national chefs and sommeliers at architectural marvels all across the Gunnison Valley; the series will be on hiatus for the summer of 2020.

The Center is also home to the Crested Butte Wine + Food Festival, another fundraiser, which brings over 1,600 oenophiles to Crested Butte each July. CB Wine + Food is also taking a break in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
