Festivals & Events

For over 30 years, the name "Telluride" has been synonymous with its signature events—whether musical, cultural, culinary, scientific, athletic or unusual.

With many festival offerings heading into their third decade, Telluride's festivals have evolved and grown, and continue to inspire the loyal fans who make the annual journey to this beautiful canyon. With variety ranging from arts and music to outdoor pursuits, there's an event to match every passion.

Long-standing offerings—such as the Mountainfilm Festival, Telluride Film Festival, Bluegrass Festival and Jazz Festival—are known among film and music aficionados for attracting the best filmmakers and musicians in the world. Some locals claim that Blues & Brews, scheduled the third weekend of September, is the favorite because it signifies the start of fall colors and the coming of ski season. Mushroom Festival and the Imogene Pass Run further exemplify the eclectic offerings of Telluride.
