Once again, the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is proud to host the Coolest Campsite Challenge!
Anyone camping at the festival has the opportunity to win a pair of 2014 festival tickets, camping passes or festival t-shirts just by having a creative campsite. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED! Campsites will be judged on their originality, quality, innovation and community attributes. Judges will roam the campground in search of the coolest campsite during the festival weekend and the winners will be announced Sunday morning on the Main Stage.
‘Camp Vintage Hippie’ took 1st place last year with a community-based campsite equipped with games, food, drinks, camping repair kits, solar lights and more. After winning for 5 years in the row, this group has been honored with two lifetime camping passes which opens up the winning spot for a new campsite challenger. The group from ‘Camp Vintage Hippie’ was successful for so many years because of the welcoming, supportive nature of their campsite. They promoted neighborhood relationships by inviting visitors to stop by and share the good times they have every year. They offered first aid, tent repair, and any camping item that you may have forgotten. They have been environmentally conscious by minimalizing their paper product usage, recycling and composting their own products and installing solar lights to be used at nighttime.
1. The site must have a particular theme. Remember, BE ORIGINAL and have fun! (Please keep things PG Rated)
2. Post your campsite name for judging purposes. (Ex: if your theme is paradise, a name could be "Tropic Blues")
A sense of community is very important in creating a unique campsite. Sites receive bonus points for offering helpful items to the camping community such as first aid or repair kits. “Some of my favorite campsite features have been solar-powered lights, food offerings (home-made pie), happy hour and the free-box theme (‘leave something useful, take something useful’)” says Denise Mongan, Director of Camping, Volunteers & Vending and Coolest Campsite judge. “Innovative ideas that support the neighborhood are very important”.
