Each Summer, thousands of people flock to the jagged San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado in search of their own unique celebration. Bluegrass, Wine, Yoga, Jazz, Mushroom, Film, Arts and Blues… just to name a few. And on the one weekend when there’s absolutely nothing going on, there’s even the infamous Nothing Festival to keep you busy.
Welcome to Festival Capital, USA. Welcome to Telluride, Colorado.
Haven’t been to Telluride? The town was founded in 1858 after gold and silver were discovered, Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank here, Nikola Tesla selected the site to build the world’s first power plant, hippies re-settled these lands in the 60’s, skiing arrived in the 70’s, real estate agents invaded in the 80’s, Tom Cruise, Oprah and Oliver Stone call it vacation, Tim McGraw wrote a song about it and on Memorial Day Weekend, this small mountain town kicks off one of the most anticipated festival lineups in the nation.
