Friday January 16 - Sunday January 18
The Telluride Fire Festival is a celebration of fire arts—both performing and sculptural.
The Festival is centered around a FREE public and interactive experience of fire artistry in the winter of 2015, on the weekend of January 16-18 in the small mountain towns of Telluride and Mountain Village. Beginning when darkness falls on Friday, Saturday and Sunday until early evening, it will take place both on the central pedestrian plaza of Mountain Village and on the “Main Street” (closed to vehicular traffic) of historic Telluride. People will watch spontaneous performances and experience (and walk among) the many forms of fire art from “art cars” to fire dancers to fire-emitting sculptures to creative burn barrels.
After the free outdoor performances are over, guests will have an opportunity to enjoy fabulous musical entertainment in venues throughout Town. Tickets to indoor events may be purchased on the website.
During the day on Saturday, workshops/studios on fire performing and art creation in conjunction with our local art organizations will be offered. To help create fire art that will be displayed at the Festival, some classes will take place throughout the fall of 2014. The event workshops are free to students, while the advance workshops will have a fee. All will focus on the reuse of found/recycled materials.
