September 13, 2020 - September 20, 2020


Vinotok 2020 will be held Sunday, September 13 – Sunday, September 20 and carries the theme of “Stoking the Fire Both Inside & Out” with Gratitude; Balance & Reciprocity; and Banishing & Beckoning.

From the cataclysmic fires we already find ourselves in–from the pandemic to climate change to dismantling the racial injustices that underlie our history–how do we want to rise up? After this hot and uncomfortable transformation, what do we want to become?
Our Community Events will be aired through interactive radio theatre on KBUT Community Radio at 90.3 in Crested Butte or 88.7 in Gunnison, and streamed from anywhere in the world through KBUT’s website.
We will be adding events over the next few days and keeping you as up-to-date as much as possible.
We therefore need to make very clear, and especially for those who travel to the valley for the Vinotok celebrations, there will be NO group gathering events for the public this year on any level. This includes the Burning of the Grump, typically held on the concluding Saturday of the celebratory week.



All events will be streamed on KBUT Radio. Tune in locally at 90.3 FM in Crested Butte or 88.7 FM in Gunnison. Or stream via www.kbut.org.
