Online Festival Archive

Now in its 40th year, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival is rich in history, both musical and otherwise. We are in the process of compiling an online historical archive of the festival's past. This is a long-term project, so check back periodically as we continue to make available more historical information - from the 40th Festival coming this June all the way back to the Telluride Fourth of July Celebration in 1973.

A special thanks to Telluride Tom for collecting and scanning most of these programs. This program archive would not exist without his hours of hard work. Check out his program archive for higher-resolution scans. Additional thanks to John Pearson for his scan of the 1992 program. If you have a copy of one of the programs we are missing from this list and are willing to help improve this archive, please contact us or Telluride Tom.
