Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors cruises into town this September!

This September, Telluride will welcome car lovers from all over the world with the inaugural Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors. Taking place from September 24-27, 2015. The 4 day festival will celebrate the beauty of Telluride during the stunning fall color season. The event is described by it’s organizers as “a world class automotive celebration set against the spectacular September foliage of the San Juan Mountains”.

The weekend’s events will be happening in various venues around the area including the historic town of Telluride, Mountain Village and the Telluride Regional Airport. The 4 days festival pass is $400, or individual day tickets can be purchased.

Event highlights for the weekend include the Million Dollar Highway Road Rally. This is without a doubt one of the most visually stunning driving experiences in the country. This picturesque, high altitude rally will transport you through the golden Aspen groves of Colorado, traversing hundreds of exhilarating turns, through gorgeous high alpine peaks, passing through towns like Ridgway, Ouray, Silverton, Durango & Rico. Other  events include the Cars of the Stars and JFK Cars exhibits and the Cool Cars on Colorado car shows, located on Telluride’s Colorado Avenue, all running from Friday through Sunday.

Meet fellow classic car enthusiasts, visit the wonderful array of shops and restaurants, and enjoy multiple venues of live music. And on Saturday, marvel at the speed and beauty of luxury airplanes at the Jets & Jags Regional Airport fly-in.
