Late Night at the 2018 Telluride Jazz Festival

The Music Continues Into The Night

The late night scene at the Telluride Jazz Festival keeps the music and party going into the deep hours of the evening with the all-inclusive Jazz After Dark format, Liberty Sessions, and The Final Waltz closing show. When the music ends in Telluride Town Park each day, the fun is far from over! Here is your guide to late night shows at the 2018 Telluride Jazz Festival!

Jazz After Dark

See them all - one Jazz After Dark pass allows entry into three different shows! 

After the festival ends in Town Park on Friday and Saturday (August 3rd and 4th), the music will continue into the night at Jazz After Dark shows located around town in a selection of Telluride's best indoor nightclubs and historic venues. Once the "Jazz After Dark" series gets jamming, a walk down Main Street feels like a walk down Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. Here, you can catch your choice of acts in an intimate, up close and personal setting at three venues.

Jazz After Dark passes allow access to all three venues for the night purchased. All venues are first come, first served and based on the capacity of each venue. After the shows begin, entry is dependent on capacity.

The 2018 Jazz After Dark schedule includes shows from Jaimoe's Jasssz Band at the Sheridan Opera House, Polyrhythmics at The Moon at O'Bannon's and GoGo Penguin at the Liberty Bar & Lounge on Friday night. Along with Turkuaz at the Sheridan Opera House, No BS! Brass Band at The Moon at O'Bannon's and Nachito Herrera Trio - "A Night in Habana" at the Liberty Bar & Lounge on Saturday night.
