Live Music and Microbrews!

When B.B. King performed here in Telluride, Colorado in 2004, he sat on the main stage in Town Park and told the crowd, "Out of the 90 different countries I've been to, I've never seen anything more beautiful than what you have here."

About The Festival

Most of the shows are performed on the Main Stage in Telluride's Town Park located at the east end of downtown.  The Grand Beer Tasting will be held on Saturday, September 19 from 12 pm - 3 pm with more than 50 microbreweries represented and over 150 different beers. As the sun goes down, venues around town turn into the famed "Juke Joints". Acts from earlier in the day play intimate late night performances at these smaller venues around the town of Telluride and Mountain Village.

Performers and fans alike are drawn to our majestic box canyon; the old adage around town is that you came for a festival, and 20 years later, you're still here. The historic mining town of Telluride sits at 8,750 feet above sea level surrounded by the San Juan Mountains. It is home to some of Colorado's best skiing in winter and becomes festival central in the summer.
