Enhanced! "Jazz After Dark" Passes

After the festival ends in Town Park on Friday and Saturday (August 4th and 5th), the music will continue into the night at Telluride's coziest nightclubs and historic venues. Here, you can catch your choice of acts in an intimate, up close and personal setting. The new “Jazz After Dark” passes will allow attendees to visit any of the venues freely, instead of purchasing tickets on an individual show-by-show basis. Available for both Friday and Saturday Night.
