A Look Back at the Telluride Fire Festival

A taste of Nevada’s Burning Man Festival in the San Juan Mountains

Over-the-top, eccentric and fiery: Telluride’s annual Fire Festival returned for the fifth consecutive year delivering another memorable and immersive art spectacle for fest-goers. 

Inspired by Nevada’s Burning Man event held in Black Rock Desert, the weekend long rounded up bonfire-esque wooden sculptures, fire spinning and art installations from local and nationwide artists to showcase on December 6-8, 2019.

The Victorian-style town was transformed into an interactive art gallery, with venues like The Palm Theater, Historic Transfer Warehouse and Heritage Plaza navigating visitors to view whimsical artistry, imbibe libations and enjoy live music.
