KBUT presents several signature events each year.

KBUT's infamous “This-Ain't-Your-Grandmother's Bingo” night is a long-running tradition and a locals favorite. It's a rowdy evening of numbers, poorly-conceived jokes, and all the “getting-daubered-by-your-neighbor” you can handle! Compete for cash, gift certificates, KBUT Gear, and more. Hosted by KBUT DJs. All players must be at least 21.

Join us for Off Season Bingo:

Tickets available at the door at 7pm, games begin at 8.

Fish Fry
June 15, 2018
Every summer, KBUT hosts the Friday Night Fish Fry, a fun-filled community party held in Crank's Plaza right outside the KBUT studios.
We serve up mounds of catfish, crawfish beignets, coleslaw, cornbread, red beans & rice with Andouille sausage, homemade desserts, and Colorado craft beers for this annual celebration of the KBUT radio program ”The Friday Night Fish Fry” on the air now for more than 20 years.


The Big Blue Festival (former KBUT Kampout)
August 24-25, 2018
The KBUT Big Blue Festival is two-days of music and fun at I Bar Ranch in Gunnison and Blue Mesa Reservoir.
Free camping is available. Shuttles will run between the I Bar and the lake. Local vendors will be on-hand with great food and drink!


Zombie Prom

2018 Date: TBA
Celebrate Halloween with KBUT's Zombie Prom! This annual celebration features DJs on two floors at the Talk of the Town. Dress up in your best — or at least your best zombie get-up — pose for prom portraits, see who is crowned Zombie Prom King and Queen, and eat some brains while you're at it.


Soul Train
March 30, 2018
KBUT's Soul Train Night is the radio station's longest-running special event. Year after year, crowds from throughout the Gunnison Valley arrive decked-out in their grooviest digs to dance, party and crown a new King and Queen of Soul! It's a true Crested Butte/Gunnison tradition. Soul Train Night is the premiere dance party of the year; a must-attend event for long-time residents and visitors alike.
