More About Telluride Bluegrass Festival 2018
Every June Festivarians and musicians from around the world make their annual pilgrimage to the historic mountain town of Telluride in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. It’s an unforgettable 4 days of music, mountains, and magic in the breathtaking box canyon at 8,750′.
The Telluride Bluegrass is held the weekend closest to the Summer Solstice — the longest day of the year which begins the Colorado summer. It’s a magical time of sun and light, when the the high country of Colorado puts away its skis and grabs hiking boots, guitars, and a low-back festival chair to take in “Bluegrass.”
