AUGUST 14 - 18, 2019

 

Since 1981, the Telluride Mushroom Festival has been celebrating all things mycological, from the newest advancements in mushroom science to our famous mushroom cook-off. Held annually in Telluride, Colorado, the festival capital of the Rockies, TMF is a can’t miss event with a colorful history in one of the most beautiful locations on earth.

 

Telluride Mushroom Festival:
What is it?

 

The Telluride Mushroom Festival is a weekend of mycology-related forays, talks and special events and is famous for the lively experience it provides all festival goers and participants. Words can’t necessarily do justice to this unique event, watch the video to get a real taste of the festival.

Camping in town first come first serve and it fills up.  Best bet get reservation at Materhorn campground drive to gondola ride into town or drive to town.

Telluride can be expensive indeed.  Years ago a local told me that the billionairs where displacing the millionaires and that comment has always stuck with me.   Airbnb is bit cheaper, but please wait a bit as I haven't reserved and need a place to stay :P

Why dont you just ask and see who is going and if you can camp with them if they have reservations.  There is no free.  The festival is not free.  The lectures are not free.....

I am well aware of the costs for the event itself, and i have no problems with paying the ticket price to attend the festival. Considering the scope and quality of the event i think it is very reasonably priced and happy to pay for the extra workshops on top. As someone who is involved with runnign events, i am well aware of running costs.

 

I am just a little confused by the cost of accommodation and the lack of hostels or backpackers in the township.  that and being on a student budget makes a significant difference.

 

Hence, yes if anyone is going and they have spare room for a backpacking aussie, i would really appreciate some assistance.

Its a wealthy ski area with expensive homes. What more needs to be said.  They put on these  endless festivals to replace the ski money in the Summer.  Should tell you a lot when Oprah and Tom Cruise have houses there.  Best bet Go with someone who is going and has a camping reservations.  Good way to meet other Topians.
