Telluride Jazz Festival ranks among the world’s most memorable music festivals. Since 1977, Telluride’s majestic perch high in the San Juan Mountains has been the site of an annual event produced by the Telluride Society for Jazz (a Colorado non-profit.org). The intimate format and superb music along with the opportunity for invigorating alpine recreation come together to create a truly unique weekend experience. Performances take place on two outdoor stages during the day and in historic theaters and clubs at night.
