iBar Ranch – Gunnison

The I Bar is an authentic western heritage event center that seats up to 515.  It is situated on a 10 acre converted hay meadow, 250 ft off of the Tomichi Creek at the base of ‘W’ Mountain in beautiful Gunnison, CO.  The Colorado DOW operates the buffer of land between our venue and Tomichi Creek and offers access to amazing fly fishing and equestrian/hiking opportunities.

The I Bar is situated 1.5 miles southeast of downtown Gunnison behind Jorgenson Park and the Pioneer Museum.  Its unique setting is what makes it very special; just on the edge of town, but deep into the quiet spaces of agriculture and recreation.

The venue is a converted hay barn with stage, lighting & sound.  While the sides are open to provide fresh air and scenery, there are curtains that can be closed for inclement weather.  The venue is in operation from May-October for community-orientated events and music you won’t want to miss.
