What's Going On This Week?
Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone, and the time to ring in the New Year is here. What better place to bring in 2017 other than Telluride? End your year with some magic and head to Michael D. Palm Theatre to see Adam Trent: The Next Generation of Magic. After having your mind blown, it’s time to prepare for the main event, Telluride’s New Year’s Eve Celebration. The fun beings with the Torchlight Parade and continues through the night with the New Year’s Eve Gala at the Sheridan Opera House and parties at Fly me to the Moon Saloon at O’Bannon’s and Last Dollar Saloon. Finally, ring in New Year with the town of Telluride on Main Street in front of the Court House for the New Year’s Eve Countdown to 2017.
Check out more on each event below:
Adam Trent: The Next Generation of Magic: Described as Justin Timberlake meet David Copperfield, his audience interactive performances are part magic, part concert, and part stand-up comedy, with a fast paced variety necessary for today’s theatre audience. Approaching his craftiness with a tongue and cheek attitude allows him to connect with people who normally hate magic shows. He promises that audiences will leave his show feeling differently than they expected to feel after a magic show. Show starts at 10:30.
New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade: A favorite tradition among locals and visitors alike. At 6:30 pm, gather in the Towns of Telluride or Mountain Village Plaza to watch the ski school employees meander down Coonskin, Telluride Trail and into Mountain Village with blazing red torchlights.
NYE Gala with Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears: Joe Lewis hails from Austin, TX, the collision center where Southern soul meets Midwestern blues and vagabond punk.
