About Our 40th
Each year in June we look forward to welcoming members of our culinary + hospitality community from around the world to connect, share, and grow through wine + food-centric experiences. With Telluride as our backdrop, this festival has grown over the past 40 years.
However, given the uncertainties around COVID-19 and the state of the industry that we exist to uplift, we’ve made the difficult decision to move the 2021 festival to Sept 23-26, 2021.
This was a tough decision to make – summer days are long, and the festival has been held in June for the past 40 years. However, the safety and security of our guests, participating talent, staff, vendors, and community is of the utmost importance and one that should take precedence above all else.
By moving to that date, we are excited to announce that we will be expanding our 40 Anniversary Celebration on the same weekend as the Telluride Autumn Classic of Cars and Colors!
We hope that you will join us at our 40th in September as we celebrate great wine and food, classic cars, motorcycles, and airplanes in the beauty of the autumn colors of Telluride!
In addition to the in-person 2021 festival in September, we’re planning other ways to uplift this community and continue our efforts by making the Telluride Wine Festival a year-round experience. Through a combination of strategic community partnerships, we are planning a series of Telluride WineXperiences throughout the summer, beginning in late June. These Xperiences will be a series of a three day, small group immersion with winemakers, chefs and somms here in Telluride.
