The Fire Festival Is This Weekend
The Telluride Fire Festival is this weekend. Friday the 20th through Sunday the 22ed. There's really not a better place to be than in Telluride this weekend.
The annual nonprofit Telluride Fire Festival made its debut in January 2015. The event was inspired by Burning Man, the annual celebration of community, art and fire, that draws 70,000 people to the Nevada desert every Labor Day weekend. The goal was to bring the Burning Man concept to Telluride along with the incrriblile fire art to the region to allow more people the ability to see and interact with this visual magic.
Fire art performances will take place each evening on the public plaza in Mountain Village and on Telluride’s Main Street. The festival is FREE. There is additional ticketed entertainment, including March Fourth Marching Band, and an over-the-top Gala. Free workshops in both welding and fire dancing were also available.
The Festival was able to offer the free out door art and workshops through generous donations, grants, and sponsorships. This January 20, 21, and 22 is expected to be the biggest, and most attended, fire festival to date. Don’t miss the fiery art!
