Come Experience the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival:

The wonderful season of summer serves as the perfect backdrop for a myriad of amazing festivals, events and activities all around the world, but you won't find a more naturally stunning venue than the historic mountain town of Telluride, Colorado. While performing in Telluride in 2004, B.B. King described the area as the most beautiful place that he'd encountered in some 90 different countries, and the town's residents and thousands of yearly visitors couldn't agree more. You can enjoy something wonderful in Telluride at any time of the year, but those who plan their visit for September have the chance to experience the wildly popular Telluride Blues and Brews Festival.

Festival Facts

In its 25th spectacular year, the 2018 Telluride Blues and Brews Festival is scheduled to begin on Friday, Sept. 14. Those in attendance should plan to enjoy three full days and nights of amazing musical performances that include much more than just the blues. Music genres represented include rock, soul, gospel, indie and funk, and it all comes with a great many famous brews that honor incredible creations that can only be found locally and some of the tastiest craft beers from across the country. In addition to the music and the fine drinks, an abundance of amazing events will be offered throughout the festival until the celebration wraps up with an incredible dance party on Sunday, Sept. 16.

Musical Lineup

Some truly stellar performances have taken place on the main stage every year during this festival, and you can expect another phenomenal turnout this year. This is just some of the amazing talent that has been scheduled to perform during this year's festival.

Other Festival Events

Those arriving a day early may enjoy a free concert on Thursday evening, and an opening party is also offered by admission only. Additionally, you may want to enter the fun race that benefits charity, relax with some outdoor yoga sessions, sample some 170 beers at the tasting events, laugh it up during the stand-up comedy routines, catch a late-night show or take the children over to a special area that has been set up specifically for their relaxation and enjoyment. At the Rainbow Kid's area, you'll discover some special entertainment for the younger crowd, several hands-on workshops, two parades, performing clowns, a bungee trampoline, a climbing wall, inflatable bounce games, a talent show and a face-painting party.
