Telluride Peak Sheet: June 2 - 8

Via Telluride Tourism Board

The aspens are bright green, the waterfalls are beginning to flow, events are happening, and it's finally starting to feel like summer around here!

Things are just getting started around town, with two festivals kicking off this weekend: The inaugural Food + Vine Festival and the beloved Balloon Festival. Food + Vine will have events throughout the weekend, including the grand tasting on Friday, Rose and Croquet and the Balloon Glow Cocktail Party on Saturday, and a brunch on Sunday. The Balloon Festival will launch on Saturday and Sunday morning with balloons soaring overhead (weather permitting). The Main Street Glow, which is Saturday night, is another great event to see the balloons up close.

Friday is a big day this week - Music on the Green starts for the season in Mountain Village with Jeff Plankenhorn and the Telluride Farmers' Market returns to Oak Street! Be sure to shop local and support your neighbors and friends.

Tonight is the first scheduled Art Walk of the year - enjoy libations and works of art at the galleries around town. Gallery guides are available here.

If your kids are around this weekend, don't forget to sign them up for the Huck Finn & Becky Thatcher Day at the Kids Pond at Town Park on Saturday! Kids 10 and under can compete in a fishing derby at 11 a.m., and there will be hot dogs, hamburgers and prizes for everyone.
