What's Going On This Week?
Opening day is tomorrow (yes!) and there are a ton of other great events happening through next week too! After hitting the slopes on opening day, check out the Australian Beer garden at Tomboy Tavern. If you’re looking for something a little warmer, head to the Elks Lodge where the Telluride Arts Bazaar is being held and will feature work from almost 50 local artists. In need of a Christmas tree? You’re in luck! WE R-1 will be selling trees and wreaths, but even better, with each purchase you are supporting your local Telluride schools. Another great family activity is to head to the Sheridan Opera House to see SAF Young People’s Theater production of “Elf The Musical Jr”. Finish out the week and get into the holiday spirit by getting some Christmas shopping done during Noel Night and taking part in cookie decorating during the Holiday Prelude!
