Words by Kathrine Warren / Event

The 5th Annual Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors a world-class celebration for automobile, motorcycle and aircraft aficionados and lifestyle enthusiasts set in the beautiful towns of Mountain Village and Telluride takes place Sept. 26-Sept. 29, 2019.

Nestled in the canyons of the San Juan Mountains, it’s placed against the backdrop of the region’s spectacular palette of September’s autumnal colors. Focusing on high-end restorations, vintage and exotic vehicles, the festival will occupy three distinct venues over four days: downtown historic Telluride, Mountain Village and the Telluride Regional Airport.

This year’s festival features two days of Concours bliss at the Telluride Golf Course in Mountain Village. Surrounded by unparalleled views of the San Juan Mountains, classic concourse level vehicles will be staged amidst Telluride’s prestigious golf course on the newly-designed three-tiered driving range.

Mountain Village’s Heritage Plaza will also host a select group of fine art vendors where car and art lovers alike will find jewelry, paintings, photography, ceramics, metalwork, glass and more. Be sure to stop by the Cars and Colors Lounge, in Heritage Plaza at the Plaza Members Lounge across from Tracks, which will serve as the festival’s hub for activities, information and more.
