In addition to the many outdoor activities that Telluride has to offer, there are a number of good cultural and shopping opportunities, as well as many art galleries, in downtown Telluride. Our recent finds include:
MIXX Projects: At 307 E. Colorado Ave., this is a contemporary gallery featuring art and home accessories. Tweed, Interior Design Studio and Boutique, at 151 S. Pine St., is a great home furnishings store as well.
The Telluride Arts District hosts the First Thursdays Art Walk, monthly from 5 pm to 8 pm. There are more than 20 galleries featured.
Make sure to visit the Telluride Arts District which features exhibition space, galleries and studios.
In addition to its many outdoor activities, Telluride has many cultural and music events throughout the year. The highlights include the Telluride Balloon Festival in June, Telluride Film Festival in September, Telluride Brews & Blues Festival in September and the Sunset Concert Series in the Mountain Village.
Friends just returned and loved the experience provided by Telluride Wranglers. You take a horse drawn wagon through aspen and pine forests and then enjoy a chuck wagon style BBQ provided by a private chef. The menu features a number of burgers and sides. The company also features trail rides and sleigh rides in the winter.
Others include the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in June, Telluride Wine Festival, Telluride Chamber Music Festival. Telluride Plein Air Festival featuring landscape artists, Telluride Yoga Festival, Shakespeare in the Park, the Telluride Jazz Festival and the Telluride Art + Architecture Weekend.
