In addition to world class music on the main stage the Telluride Jazz Festival has plenty to keep you entertained. From artist workshops, a wine and spirits tasting, to a kids area and so much more, there's something for everyone.
"Wine & Whisky"
"Wine & Whisky" is a complimentary tasting that takes place inside the festival grounds and features some of the best distilleries, wineries in Colorado and beyond. Enjoy music on the Main Stage while sampling premium wine and spirits in a beautiful setting. Commemorative glasses are provided to all festival goers.
Stay tuned for this year’s winery and distillery announcement coming soon!
ARTIST WORKSHOPS & DISCUSSIONS
These intimate and interactive classes with world class musicians and educators aim to further our mission of providing student education through music. All workshops are free and will be held on the Elks Park Workshop Stage.
Stay tuned for more information about how you can sign up.
new orleans 2nd line Parade
Second Line Parades are a New Orleans tradition. Brass-bands take to the street, play and march. Onlookers who followed along to enjoy the music were known as the second line.
On Sunday morning, join the Festival staff, attendees and a brass band at Elk's Park for a Second Line Parade down Main Street all the way to Telluride Town Park. Everyone is welcome! Colorful floats, costumes, beads and decorations are all welcome as attendees join in on the march through town.
Jazz After Dark
On Friday and Saturday nights, after the festival ends in Town Park, we continue the music with “Jazz After Dark” shows located in various venues throughout Telluride. One pass allows entry into three different shows!
Jazz After Dark passes allow access to all venues for the night purchased. Be aware, Jazz After Dark passes do not guarantee entry to the show, all venues are first come, first served and based on the capacity of each venue. As they fill up, we direct you to which Jazz After Dark venues are not full. As the night goes on, crowds at the Jazz After Dark tend to rotate, so even if you can't catch the start of the band you want to see, there's a good chance you can catch the last half of their show. So, if there is one particular band you really want to see, get in line early for the show! After the shows begin, entry is dependent on capacity.
