Telluride Fire Festival
Inspired by Burning Man, The Telluride Fire Festival is centered around an interactive experience of fire artistry. The goal was to bring the Burning Man ethos to Telluride along with the larger-than-life fire art to the region to support these artists and allow more people the ability to see, interact with, and create this visual magic. Since 2015, the annual event continues to offer dynamic art performances each evening in a variety of locations. Additional ticketed entertainment, plus an over-the-top Fire Ball with theatrical performances, music, cash bar, and an outdoor fire sculpture garden. Free and fee-based fire related workshops are also a staple component of the Telluride Fire Festival. This December 3-5, 2021 we expect to change it up again with new fiery art and unique performance art.
October 2019, the Festival changed their nonprofit name to Rocky Mountain Arts, which embodies more than the fire arts and helps educate our supporters about the multi-faceted programs and performances offered by the Festival. This year's event is able to offer the free workshops at the library and November True North Youth Program Workshop through generous donations, grants, and sponsorships.
