Some of the best jazz music in all the world is played in the small town of Telluride, CO each summer. Early in August, many of the best jazz musicians from all over the globe come to Telluride to take part in the Annual Telluride Jazz Festival. This tradition has been building for over 40 years, with each festival seemingly better than the one before. The way that the beautiful music combines with the beauty of the nature all around Telluride makes for an experience that simply can’t be described – except to say, you have to come see it for yourself to truly understand.
The Telluride Jazz Festival is billed as a celebration of art, music, and culture, and it is easy to see why. Friendly faces are all around when you walk through Telluride’s clean streets, and it is never hard to get in the mood for relaxing and listening to some great music. The festival takes place over three days, with nearly non-stop music for that entire time. The action opens at around 1:00 P.M. on Friday, and runs until nearly 9:00 P.M. on Sunday night. During that time, you will be lucky enough to hear some of the best jazz musicians do what they do best – entertain a live crown with their considerable talent and passion for music.
Not that you will want to take a break from the music, but there are plenty of other options for activities in and around Telluride if you wish to. There are great historical sites to see, guided tours for fishing and hiking, and some tasty spots to sample the local fare and enjoy a cold adult beverage. Since the Jazz Festival occurs right at the height of the summer, you are almost sure to enjoy wall to wall sunshine during your stay.
