Balloon Festival

Telluride Balloon Festival

A Sky's Delight

Every June, Telluride is treated to a festival that brings joy to children and adults alike. Set your alarm and grab a cup of joe to watch hot air balloons launch from Town Park. A lucky few get the chance to ride in the basket with the pilots. The sky quickly becomes dotted with colorful orbs that make their way across the valley. At night, enjoy the "Glo" on Main Street. Closed off to traffic, the thoroughfare is filled with pedestrians gathered to take photos and get close to the action. It's a fantastic time for the entire family.
