We Love When Event Organizers Hold Events Here

As the host town we do require you to go through a formal application process to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. In terms of what constitutes a special event, a special event is any organized gathering for any purpose for a limited period of time at which any two or more of the following apply:

  1. The expenditure of our resources is contemplated or is deemed necessary by town personnel to maintain public health, safety and welfare.
  2. Your event requires the use of our facility or property.
  3. Your event is expected to have a visual, noise or other environmental impact upon the immediate vicinity or surrounding area of your event.

We ask that all special event applications – major or minor – be submitted as early as possible, no more than 180 days and a minimum of 30 days prior to your planned event. If this doesn’t occur, we will still make every effort to accommodate your request to the best of our ability.

Telluride Conference Center

The Telluride Conference Center, located in Mountain Village, operates independently and provides a full-range of food and beverage catering and meeting, wedding, lodging and destination management services. If your organized gathering is held exclusively with the Telluride Conference Center, you do not need to submit a Special Event Permit Application unless the event’s overall attendance is anticipated to exceed our existing parking capacity. For more information about the facility and all its offerings, please refer to the Telluride Conference Center official website.
