The Telluride Jazz Festival is scheduled to kick off on Friday, Aug. 9, and it will run through Sunday, Aug. 11, in Telluride, Colorado. Jazz concerts by top musicians and talented newcomers may be enjoyed each day of the festival, and those in attendance may also expect to be treated to concerts in several other genres of music that include folk, gospel, soul and funk. This festival has been going strong for more than 40 years, and several cool activities and events run alongside the concerts. These include a big New Orleans-style parade, an art walk, yoga sessions, a walking tour of the historic town of Telluride and hands-on music workshops. The full schedule of events is scheduled to be released this spring along with the names of the expected musicians, and tickets officially go on sale Feb. 1 at 10 a.m. Those lodging with us here at Exceptional Stays may count on our dedicated concierge team to secure your tickets for the Telluride Jazz Festival.
