There's something magical about Telluride. Celebrated for its rugged ski terrain, majestic mountains, rivers and waterfalls, and panoramic views, the tiny historic mining town-turned-tourist-hot-spot is one of Colorado's most renowned mountain towns. Known to music aficionados, the annual RIDE Festival draws 8,000+ fans to the picturesque Telluride Town Park to experience seasoned and emerging performers in an intimate setting unlike any other.

The RIDE Festival is a destination event featuring rock ‘n’ roll music, kid-friendly festival programming, and a varied late-night live music schedule. The RIDE Festival’s proximity to many outdoor activities makes this a unique opportunity to extend your stay. Enjoy world class hiking, mountain biking, river rafting, fishing, visit area hot springs or delve into the history of the west.

Ticket holders have the option to rent a traditional mountain lodge, condo or townhome during their visit or stay in one of the scenic camping spots located adjacent to the festival grounds. Limited lodging is available for the annual event and fans are encouraged to secure accommodations early.

The RIDE Festival is a proud supporter of KOTO, Telluride’s local non-commercial, listener supported radio station. When you participate at The RIDE Festival, you too support high-quality, commercial-free, non-underwritten community radio.
