It'S Time To Get Funky

Channel your inner Funk at this year’s Telluride Blues & Brews Festival and win tickets to the 2015 Festival! On Saturday, Sept 13th we are hosting a full-blown FUNK COSTUME CONTEST and the Blues & Brews Crew will be flaunting their eclectic Funk style right along with you, so don’t be shy to Funk it up!

We will be handing out (6) “FUNK” tickets to the most enthusiastically dressed throughout the Festival on Saturday starting immediately following the Grand Tasting. The chosen (6) will then report to the festival Merchandise tent at 7:00 p.m. that evening to redeem their “FUNK” ticket to qualify for the final round. The (6) finalists will be directed by a member of the Festival staff onto the MAIN STAGE where they will vie for the most cheers of their fellow festivarians! So tell your FRIENDS to get excited, join in the fun and bring on the FUNK!

The contestant who gets the most audience cheers for their costume will be awarded TWO WEEKEND PASSES to the 22nd Annual BLUES & BREWS FESTIVAL in 2015!! That's right, the best FUNK costume wins! So break out your best 70's style clothes to get the crowd fired up before George Clintons and Parliament Funkadelic’s performance on Saturday, Sept. 13th! Ladies, poof-up your bouffant and gents, throw on your bell bottoms. It’s time to get serious and “Put a glide in your stride, a dip in yo' hip and come on up to the mothership of Funk…” May the BEST FUNK WIN!!!
