Mountain Village All Summer: Free Sunset Concerts & More!

Mountain Village All Summer: Free Sunset Concerts & More!

Produced by Teddy Errico and brought to the Telluride region by the Town of Mountain Village Owners Association, the free Sunset Series in Mountain Village kicks off June 27 and runs through August 15, 6 p.m., rain or shine. To learn more about the Sunset Concert Series (and Red, White & Blues happenings), visit and And please scroll down for other events in Mountain Village this summer.

The Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association is pleased to announce the lineup for the annual Sunset Concert Series. One of the most anticipated events of the summer season celebrates its 20th year in Telluride bringing music and entertainment to the San Juan Mountains.

The Sunset Concert Series consists of nine shows which take place on the lawn near Lift 1 in the Sunset Plaza. The concerts start at 6 p.m. and, as in prior years, the program is free and family- and pet-friendly.

Aptly named because of the west-facing orientation of the concert venue (which results in fantastic sunset views), the Sunset Plaza in Mountain Village is a great setting for one of the most spectacular music events in the country.

“TMVOA is proud to bring another summer season of music to Mountain Village,” said Anton Benitez, TMVOA executive director. “We look forward to having our members, guests and visitors come together for this weekly community event that has become one of the great summer traditions in the region.”

The 2018 Sunset Concert Series lineup is as follows:

• June 27 – Kabaka Pyramid (Reggae)
• July 3 – Red White and Blues Celebration w/Paul Thorn (America Blues) and Foxfeather (Americana)
• July 4 – Red White and Blues Celebration w/Glen David Andrews (New Orleans), Dave Jordan and the NIA (New Orleans) and Porch Couch (Bluegrass)
• July 11 – The Teskey Brothers (Australian Soul)
• July 18 – Ally Venable Band (Texas Blues)
• July 25 – Gavin Turek (Pop)
• Aug 1– Old Salt Union (Bluegrass)
• Aug 8 – Brent Cobb (Country)
• August 15 – Charlie Hunter Trio (Jazz)

“Once again, we are providing a diverse line-up with a variety that will be fun for everyone,” said Teddy Errico, producer. “All bands are hot on social media and very talented.”

The Sunset Concert Series is provided to the public free-of-charge by TMVOA, The Telluride Society for Music and presenting sponsor, Telluride Express. Supporting sponsors include Alpine Bank, Madeline Hotel and Residences, Rodney Strong Vineyards, KOTO FM Radio, Telluride Resort Lodging, Telluride Ski & Golf, the Town of Mountain Village, The Peaks Resort & Spa, and The Market at Mountain Village.


For the Sunset Concert Series, the Common Consumption Area is in effect.

The Common Consumption Area allows attendees to purchase alcoholic beverages from participating licensed establishments attached to the aea and move freely with beverages within the defined boundaries of the concert space. (Only alcohol from participating establishments is permitted.)


TMVOA is the property owner’s association for the Telluride Mountain Village. Its goal is to ensure Telluride Mountain Village remains a highly sustainable and vital resort community. Monies collected by TMVOA from Real Estate Transfer Assessments and annual member assessments provide funding and support for the operation of the Gondola, Village Court Apartments (which provide affordable housing to assist with the creation of a stable workforce), foster economic development and vitality to increase tourism and provide a vibrant community for all members and guests.


Situated in the heart of the breathtaking San Juan Mountains, Mountain Village was incorporated in 1995 as a home rule municipality. Its founders envisioned a European-style ski-in/ski-out, pedestrian-friendly destination resort that would complement the historic mining town of Telluride. A three-stage gondola transportation system connects the Town of Mountain Village with the Town of Telluride. Situated at 9,500 feet, Mountain Village is comparably a world apart from other resorts: it is beautifully orchestrated and planned community overflowing with style, charm, and sophistication.
