Telluride Music Festival

Telluride Music Festival

The Telluride Blues and Brews Festival takes place in the historic mining town of Telluride, Colorado, situated 8,750 feet above sea level in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. This year marks their 25th anniversary, making it one of the oldest music festivals in Colorado and one of the older ones in the whole country. There are activities for the kids all weekend long, including strolling clowns, face painting and puppets as well as more active games such as a climbing wall and inflatables.

Blues & Brews is a three-day celebration of blues, funk, jam bands, indie, rock, gospel and soul performances —accompanied by some of the best craft breweries in the country, a wide variety of food and craft vendors, kids’ activities, late night shows, and much, much more. Even though the festival only lasts for three days and four nights, once you get to Telluride, you may not want to go home. Tickets are selling fast, so if you plan to go, get your tickets soon.

Telluride’s Main Street, just steps away from the festival grounds, is home to a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and bars. After the music ends in Town Park for the evening, the festival scene moves into various music venues located throughout the town of Telluride. These are called “Juke Joints” and, once they get jamming, a walk down Main Street feels like a walk down Beale Street in Memphis.

In addition to a full lineup of music featuring the likes of Marco Benevevento, The Keeshea Pratt Band, The Marcus King Band and many, many other performers, there will be a Telluride Blues Challenge on Saturday from 9–noon. Details are on their website.

Telluride Blues and Brews also features a 5K race on Saturday morning. Blisters & Brews is a 5k Fundraiser Race on the morning of September 15th, giving Festival patrons the opportunity to exercise before the Festival. The 5k Race, sponsored by BootDoctors™ Paragon Outdoors, will raise money for the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program.

Beginning and ending in Telluride’s Elks Park, Blisters & Brews provides runners with a safe, beautiful way to kick off their day. The route has been planned to enhance the running experience and highlight the beauty of Telluride. The race route climbs up the river trail giving racers the opportunity to take in the beauty of the Bridal Veil Falls on the way up and a gentle decline for the way back down to town and ending at Elks Park followed by live music, free beer and free Blues & Brews Yoga Sessions.
