Festivals of every kind have found a home in Telluride over the years, but it's the yearly music festivals that really draw in the crowds. If you happen to be one of those people who is counting down the days until it's time for the next music festival, then you don't have to wait much longer. Make your plans now to join the thousands of other festival enthusiasts from all around the globe for the extraordinarily popular Telluride Bluegrass Festival that is scheduled for this June.

About the Telluride Bluegrass Festival

This incredible music festival is in its 44th year, and it has continually grown in popularity. It's considered nothing less than an epic tribute to the genre of bluegrass, and those in attendance may expect a truly magical, feel-good experience that brings together the most soulful songwriters, bluegrass super-pickers and the biggest stars of bluegrass from throughout the country.

Festival Schedule

This year's Telluride Bluegrass Festival is scheduled to begin on Thursday, June 21st, and it will run straight through Sunday, June 24th. Though it's still early, an impressive lineup of performers has already committed to this event. It's also a regular tradition for surprise performers to show up at the last minute.

More Festival Fun

While every day of the festival is filled with a variety of incredible live music, there's much more to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. These are just a few of the extra activities that are offered during the festival.

Elks Park Workshops

Each day of the festival offers those in attendance a chance to enjoy some extra time with the many performers. You may find a workshop that features your favorite bluegrass picker revealing the secrets of his or her amazing talent, and there are always plenty of unique musical collaborations being performed at a moment's notice. Other workshops may include the art of instrument building, finger skills and poetry readings. This is also the place for visitors to watch and listen to the bands perform in the preliminary rounds of the festival contest.

NightGrass Shows

During Telluride's Bluegrass Festival, the music doesn't stop just because the day's talent lineup has finished with their performances. Instead, the night is filled with music at popular venues throughout the town of Telluride and nearby Mountain Village. While it's too early to have a specific lineup available, you may expect musical performances to be held each night at the historic Sheridan Opera House, the historic Swede-Finn Hall, the Palm Theater or the Telluride Conference Center.

Ticket Availability

Sadly, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival only offers limited tickets because of space limitations. You can still purchase a one-day festival pass for Thursday or Sunday for $82, but the passes are sold out for both Friday and Saturday. However, all hope is not lost because you can still buy a pass that is good for all four days for $235. Admission to the night shows is not included with the regular festival passes, and tickets must be purchased separately. Look for these to be available just a bit later in March.
