New Year’s Eve in Telluride

Telluride is an exciting place to be to ring in the new year. While there is always a lot of great things going on, this is especially true for New Year’s Eve. Here is a list of five events that you can check out in Telluride while you are saying goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016.

Ah Haa’s NYE Winter Gala will be from 5:30 to 10 on New Year’s Eve at the art school. Ring in the new year while taking in the work guest artists in the Daniel Tucker Gallery. It will be set as a formal dining room for those in attendance to indulge in hors d’oeuvres at the cocktail reception. This will precede a four-course dinner by one of Telluride’s own chefs. Conversations will also be featured by Gala Artists, Sam Levy and Rob Schultheis.

You can get tickets to this elegant gala for $300 a person (or $2,000 for an 8 person table). Make sure to reserve your spot quickly to attend this creative and fun evening.   

New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade and Fireworks is a must see for anyone lucky enough to spend New Year’s Eve in Telluride. This unforgettable event at Telluride Ski Resort features skiers and boarders meander down Coonskin, Telluride Trail and into Mountain Village with blazing torchlights.

Don’t forget to stick around after this display to be wowed by fireworks and festivities.
