The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Grand Tasting presented by the Telluride Blues Society features 56 craft breweries and takes place Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 12 pm – 3 pm on the festival grounds. The 25-year-old Grand Tasting is widely regarded as the premiere craft beer event in the Southwest and is the perfect opportunity for breweries to sample and show off their best micro brews to 9,500 festival attendees from all over the world!


Play your way to the Main Stage

Through a partnership with Telluride Music Company, Telluride Blues Society and Colorado Blues Society, we are excited to present the 2019 Telluride Blues Challenge. The Telluride Blues Challenge is an annual competition providing talented up-and-coming artists from the blues genre with an opportunity to advance their professional career and play the Telluride Blues & Brews Main Stage!

Solo blues musicians not signed to a major record or publishing deal can enter by submitting two recorded songs for consideration. Solo vocalists are also encouraged to enter.

Entries will be judged on blues content, vocals, talent, originality and overall impression. A panel of blues experts will narrow down entries and invite the top six to compete in a live final competition held on Saturday morning of the festival at Telluride Elks lodge. Here, the judges will select the Telluride Blues Challenge Champion.
