About the Ride Festival

Summertime is made for fun, amazing friends and great music, and there’s no better way to experience a rockin’ good time than at the yearly Telluride RIDE Festival that has been scheduled for July 10-12 . In its 9th big year, this popular event attracts lovers of rock and roll music from all around the globe and boasts some of the best talent in the industry. Concerts will be held each day at Telluride Town Park and at Sunset Plaza in nearby Mountain Village, and the evenings will feature incredible performances at the Sheridan Opera House, Wood Ear, The Liberty, and the Moon at O’Bannon’s. The RIDE Festival is a family friendly event, and those with children of all ages are sure to enjoy the special tent area that offers a wonderful variety of fun activities and events.

Children are always welcome guests at Telluride’s music festivals, and the little ones enjoy rocking out to the music just as much as their parents. To make the children feel even more special, you’ll find a tent set up for their enjoyment and comfort. Children of all ages are welcome, and those aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, and a full daily schedule and a sign-up sheet will be posted outside the tent.

Local talented artists will be painting faces in a variety of wonderful designs, and every child is invited to work on arts and crafts. Choices include shirt decorating, jewelry design, hula hoop creation and badge buttons. Each child is also welcome to participate in organized games, and there will be several acts on the tent stage. Amazing magicians will entertain, singers will lead the children in song and an open mic will be available for the children to show off their vocal abilities.

Multiple Vendors

The vendors come out in full force each year, and you’ll have access to plenty of food, drinks, goods and gear. Kid-friendly cuisine, vegan fare, decadent sweets, amazing barbecue and Colorado favorites will all be available to hungry festival participants. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase some interesting items that include hippie apparel, recycled skateboards, restrung jewelry and unique hats and sunglasses, and you can definitely expect to find some unique, one-of-a-kind buys during the festival.
