An Evolution…Looking Towards the Future

An Important Announcement, A Difficult Decision. …And, An Evolution.

Rocky Mountain Arts has made a difficult decision to cancel the Telluride Fire Festival for this December. Regrettably, San Miguel County will not permit the Festival to use the recently paved road at the end of the box canyon. As we no longer have an outdoor location which is suitable for large-scale flaming art, we’ve been left with no alternative but to end the Telluride Fire Festival. It’s been a great run for the past eight years.

We want to express our sincere appreciation for your passionate participation. We understand that many of you were looking forward to this event, and we thank you for your enthusiastic support.

We will keep you informed of any developments, including potential rescheduling or new locations.

Please do follow us on our journey as we continue supporting education in the arts through workshops for youth and adults.

We wish to thank Michael Mowery for this beautiful image pictured above.

With Love & Gratitude,

Erin Ries, Executive Director
Chris Myers, Board President
