A festival with over 40 years of rich history, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival occurs late in June each year and is the unofficial kick-off of the summer season. This four day event combines some of the greatest talents in bluegrass music along with some up and coming talent that you will hear first in Telluride. Telluride is the perfect setting for bluegrass music, with the natural surroundings and peaceful atmosphere setting the state for these great performers.
One of the things that makes the Telluride Bluegrass Festival such a can’t miss event is the way the performers feel about it. Since it is one of the highlights of their schedule, the performers often turn in sessions that are the best they will ever play. The setting and the crowd have been known to come together and inspire music like you have never heard before.
Even if you are not a dedicated bluegrass fan, you will certainly recognize some of the great names that are taking the stage.
This festival of great music and camaraderie runs from 10 in the morning until around midnight each day. Over that time, you will be able to enjoy music on multiple stages, sample some great food, and simply soak up the wonderful setting that is Telluride. Whether you are a seasoned bluegrass listener or are fairly new to the genre, you will be instantly captured by the magic that occurs on these stages each June.

Another one of the great things about the Telluride Bluegrass festival is the history of artists being willing to take risks on the stage and create music that they have maybe never even tried before. Since the crowd is so knowledgeable and passionate about bluegrass music, the artists don’t feel as though they are performing for a crowd so much as they are performing for friends. When two or more of the legendary names in bluegrass music get together for a session on the stage, there is literally no telling what could happen next.
Of course, if you are going to visit for the Bluegrass Festival, you will need somewhere to stay. Since there is no parking at the festival and you either need to walk or take transit, the ideal lodging is close to the festival grounds where you can just slip on your shoes and stroll over for great music. We have many properties available right within the town that are a perfect spot to call home during the festival. Our accommodations are first rate all the way around, and a great way to relax and rest up for another day out in the Colorado sun soaking up the best bluegrass music in the world.
