Inaugural Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors Announced as World-class Celebration
TFCC Continues the Time-honored Tradition of the Concours d’Elegance, Gathering World’s Finest Automobiles At One of America’s Most Beautiful Destinations
Telluride is world-renowned for its splendor and its beauty. And in 2015, the inaugural Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors will continue the time-honored tradition of the Concours d’Elegance, and gather the world’s finest automobiles at one of America’s most beautiful destinations.
Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors, September 24–27, 2015, is a world-class celebration for automobile aficionados and lifestyle and travel enthusiasts, set in the beautiful town of Telluride, Colorado. Nestled in the canyons of the San Juan Mountains, it’s placed against the backdrop of Telluride’s spectacular palette of September’s autumnal colors and focuses on high-end restorations, vintage and exotic vehicles.
The 4-day festival is open to the general public, with tickets ranging from $75-$400. Currently, and for a limited time only, the 4-day festival pass ($400) that allows access to all venues can be purchased on a 2-for-1 basis, a savings of $400. A select number of venues will be open and free to the public, such as the Cool Cars on Colorado and Village Plaza location.
Vehicle entry for the Concours at Mountain Village or the Main Street venue is $50 per car. All submissions will be subject to committee review before acceptance and placement.
"We're very excited to be creating this event right in our hometown of Telluride, Colorado. While Telluride is world-renowned during the winter for its ski season, the fall season's colors and ambiance is even more spectacular and perfectly complements the exquisite vintage machines, top-flight restorations, international exotics, and American classic and sports cars that we have lined up for the Concours," explains owner, founder and Telluride resident Ray Cody. "Telluride is host to many festivals throughout the summer months, many of them world famous. It's time that we come together and celebrate the passion we enthusiasts have for our automobiles in a setting where the beauty all around cannot be denied. Cars have always played an important role in my life, and Telluride holds a special place in my heart; it only makes sense to bring the two together.”
The festival will occupy three distinct venues over the course of the 4 days: downtown Telluride Historic District including the park and pavilion, the Mountain Village, and the Telluride Regional Airport.
