Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Map
500 E. Colorado Ave., Shellman Memorial Stage, Town Park, Telluride, CO 81435

Centered on the late June main festival, the Telluride Bluegrass season runs from June to August with five different events and academies. The stage is set in Town Park among the San Juan Mountains, and the first gathering took place in 1973. The festival tends to stretch the definition of “bluegrass,” and has hosted artists like Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, and Counting Crows. The “traditional” side isn’t neglected, though, and is represented by Sam Bush and groups like Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. RockyGrass Academy and The Song School offer a chance to learn how it’s done.
