Free Sunset Concert Series
Beginning at the end of June, Wednesdays in Mountain Village are the place to be for watching seriously breathtaking sunsets and listening to some great free music. The concerts take place outside in the Sunset Plaza from 6-8pm, a perfect mid-week event that all the locals love. These concerts often feature artists who will be playing later in the week at one of Telluride's major music festivals.
There's plenty of room for people and the atmosphere is very casual. Be sure to tring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on. Many Mountain Village restaurants will provide to-go meals, or bring your own picnic basket. Alcohol may be purchased and consumed at the event.
Over the years, the concert series has hosted artists such as The Steepwater Band, the London Souls, Dumpstaphunk, the Blind Boys of Alabama, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Great Funktier, and Big Sam's Funky Nation.
