The History of Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Nestled in the rugged San Juan Mountains and surrounded on three sides by the natural architecture of the Telluride Box Canyon, Telluride is arguably the most spectacular town in the American West.

Founded in 1875, the Victorian charm of the town is protected as a National Historic Landmark District. The town of Telluride (elevation 8,750′) is connected to the modern resort community of Mountain Village (elevation 9,450′) via a free commuter gondola.

The San Juan Mountains are the highest concentration of 14,000 mountains in the US. Activities in and around Telluride include mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, numerous hot springs, historic ghost towns, and whatever else your sense of adventure shows you. Popular hikes from town are the Bridal Veil Falls – the highest cascade in Colorado – and the 2-mile hike up to Bear Creek Falls beginning right behind the festival stage.
