Built in 1906 as a filling destination for freight trains and a center for commercial storage and horse stables, the once two-story, enclosed Telluride Transfer Warehouse has evolved into an open-air community renaissance of arts, ideas and creativity.

While fireworks and American flags traditionally mark the arrival of this time of year, in Telluride, artists with easels set up in various spots throughout town also means it’s Fourth of July.

Every year since 1973, during the Summer Solstice weekend, audacious budding and old-timer bluegrass musicians journey into the San Juan Mountains, aspiring to push the limits of traditional bluegrass music. The Telluride Bluegrass Festival has been curated as an eclectic event that allows m…

I'm not an equestrian or from Wales. I'm not from NYC or Latinx. I'm not even a big fan of musicals. But I am a fan of stories about achieving your dreams. “Dream Horse” is based on the true story of how one woman's dream of owning a racehorse rallied a small Welsh village and gave them all …

In music, time is important. It even has a time “signature,” with each song assigned a specific number of beats per measure. There’s 3/4, which offers the lilting sway of the waltz, and 6/8, which can lend a certain gravitas à la “House of the Rising Sun.” Of course, there’s 4/4, also known …

Telluride Town Park isn’t the only place to see live music this weekend. While the Telluride Bluegrass Festival stretches into its second week — a significant change this year due to planning and finalizing the event during the COVID-19 pandemic — Mountain Village is just as musical.

As far as outdoor concerts go, there is hardly a better backdrop than the San Juan Mountains. The picturesque peaks enhance the viewer experience in ways that are hard to imagine, and explain, if one isn’t there to take it all in for themselves.

The next time you grab a coffee and a doughnut from Baked In Telluride (BIT), treat your senses to the photography adorning the popular bakery’s walls. Each image is glowing with color and fills the eye with impossibly sweeping vistas. From the grandeur of these San Juan Mountains to the mag…
