The Town of Telluride hosts the 2nd Annual Fourth of July Bash on Thursday, July 4, 2024, with the help of the Symbiotic Events and the Telluride Fire Protection District and Volunteer Fire Department.

Again, this year’s events will include a parade, live music in Town Park, family games and activities, food vendors, a beer garden, fireworks, and more.

New this year, the Town and Symbiotic are working with Nova Sky Drones and Pivotal Effects to bring two laser and drone shows to bookend the Telluride Fire Protection District’s fireworks show. The first 600-drone show will comprise an “Ode to the Valley,” paying homage to the Town’s rich history and honoring its current, beautiful community and landscape. The second, titled an “Ode to America,” will bring on a stunning display of classic Independence Day sights and sounds.

The Town is excited to welcome back residents and visitors alike for events throughout the day, including:

• 10:00 am Parade Staging

Attendees get to enjoy live music from the Hill Stompers during the parade and into Town Park, followed by performances from three local bands on the Town Park Stage, including Atari Safari, Outli Outlaws, and Chrome Velvet. This year’s food and beverage vendors will include the Churro Cart, Latin Creations, the Cheese Cart, Rhino Dumplings and Thai Iced Tea, Counter Culture, La Columbiana, Wok of Joy, Will Nolan’s Blacksalt, Mountain High Ice Cream, Pop Telluride and Telluride Pretzel.

Telluride, more:

Nestled amidst the majestic San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, Telluride’s captivating narrative is deeply rooted in the ancient legacy of the Ute tribe, the valley’s original inhabitants, who crafted their summer camps along the San Miguel River, naming the land “The Valley of Hanging Waterfalls.”

In the late 1700s, Spanish explorers traversed the rugged terrain, laying the groundwork for subsequent exploration and settlement. A fervent mining boom followed, igniting a rush of prospectors to the region, culminating in the founding of Telluride in 1880.

Telluride’s allure as a hub of opportunity attracted fortune seekers, bolstered by the arrival of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad and groundbreaking innovations like the hydroelectric power plant in Ames.

Set in a box canyon amid forested peaks at the base of the popular Telluride ski-and-golf resort, the town’s historic district houses landmarks like the Sheridan Opera House and the Telluride Historical Museum while playing host to culture, music, arts, outdoor recreation, and festivals with unrivaled views and dramatic locale.
