The Telluride Fire Festival is centered around a public and interactive experience of fire artistry in Telluride, Colorado — FREE TO ALL. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 5pm- 8pm, watch spontaneous fire performances and view the many forms of fire art — “art cars”, fire dancers, and fire-emitting sculptures. Additional evening ticketed musical entertainment is available at a variety of venues. Visit the event schedule page for details.
We recommend to book your hotel and flight around 2-3 months before the event – this time period will guarantee a good selection of hotel rooms. Please visit our Plan Your Trip page.
