The Patron Experience Gets Additional Upgrades

The best way to attend the Telluride Jazz Festival just got better...AGAIN! The 2017 Patron Experience builds upon existing amenities with the addition of an on-stage seated viewing area, full stage-side open bar and access to a backstage Patron Area. These additions will further the Festival's most luxurious pass option making for a truly elegant, elevated and memorable experience.

New Amenities: 

  • On-Stage Seating - Covered on-stage seating offers the most intimate performance viewing possible. Steps away from the performers, you'll enjoy a clear view of the entire stage, complemented with a beautiful San Juan Mountain backdrop and unparalleled sound quality. A stage-side bar will be located nearby.
  • Hosted Stage-Side Bar - Treat yourself to a full, open bar featuring craft beer, select wine and specialty cocktails within arms reach of the on-stage seating.


  • Wine and Dine Backstage with the Artists - Patrons can enjoy special access to a backstage Patron Area featuring a complimentary bar, covered dining area serving catered meals by chef Josh Klein and upscale, dedicated Patron restrooms.

These new amenities join an already tuned-up Patron Experience including a Private Opening Concert, Meet and Greets with Select Jazz Artists, Private Jazz Brunch, an Open Bar, Catered Meals, Private Restrooms, Priority Entry to Town Park and more. A portion of each Patron Pass includes a tax-deductible charitable donation to the Telluride Society for Jazz. All passes also grant free entry into the Telluride Historical Museum.

Early Bird Patron Experience Passes are on sale now for $650 ($200 discount off the regular price) and are almost sold out with only 5 remaining!
