Now that fall has officially begun, we can start looking forward to some thrilling events, especially with Halloween just around the corner. Halloween is best enjoyed with a variety of spooky yet family-friendly events. Telluride has plenty in store for the Halloween holiday this year, making sure families of all ages can join in on the fun. Take a look at some of the exciting Halloween events and activities you can enjoy right here in Telluride this year:
Telluride Horror Show
One of our favorite parts of Halloween each year is having the perfect chance to get caught up on some of our favorite scary movies. Telluride loves a good scary movie and has hosted the Telluride Horror Show for 11 consecutive years now. The 12th annual Telluride Horror Show is just around the corner and will be one of the best events yet. This horror film festival brings in attendees from all over the world to screen the latest and greatest horror films. This three-day festival features many movies that are being shown for the first time to the public. This year’s events include plenty of film screenings, special programs, special guests, and horror events that will keep you on the edge of your seats. This year’s Telluride Horror Show is scheduled to take place on October 15th through 17th for a spooky time that only telluride can provide.
Lamplight Cemetery Tour
Another spooky yet family-friendly activity that is perfect for any Telluride visitor to join in is the upcoming Lamplight Cemetery Tour offered by the Telluride Historical Museum. This spooky tour takes place at the Lone Tree Cemetery right here in town for a lamplight tour of the area. Your tour guide will provide a thorough history of some of the spooky events that have occurred throughout Telluride’s history. Many of the rugged locals who lived and worked in Telluride have been buried at this local cemetery. The Lamplight Cemetery Tour is scheduled to take place on October 16th, October 22nd, and October 30th at 6:00 PM for an hour-long tour. Guests need to register in advance for the tour by calling 970-728-3344. Guests are recommended to bring a flashlight for safety and also dress warmly for the occasion as the Telluride fall season can be chilly at night.
Ride the Gondola
The Halloween season is just not reserved for spooky events and activities. Make sure to take the time during your fall trip to see all of the wonderful colors of the leaves. Telluride is known for its incredible fall foliage that changes colors as the weather gets cooler. One of the best ways in the area to do just that is by riding the gondola. A ride aboard the gondola should be on your itinerary no matter the time of the year you visit. It is a free ride up to Mountain Village that takes you high above the treetops. This is the best way to see all of the trees and their changing colors. It even has handicap accessible and pet-friendly cars that allow for everyone to make the journey with you. The gondola is currently scheduled to operate daily from 7:00 AM to midnight (until 2:00 AM on Fridays and Saturdays) up until October 17th. Don’t miss out on this must-see Telluride experience!
Another incredible way to experience all of the changing colors of the leaves and the cooler temperature around Halloween is by going for a hike. Visitors of Telluride do not even have to go far to find a local trail. The San Miguel River Trail starts right in the heart of Telluride and provides some incredible views. Additional trails that result in even better views of the canyon can be found at Jud Wiebe. More adventurous hiking can be found at Via Ferrata if you are ready for the journey.
Go Mountain Biking
Add a little speed to your fall and Halloween trip by enjoying some mountain biking out on the trails. Prospect Trail is perfect for the average rider and will take you all the way down to Mountain Village. Those who are more experienced will have a thrill when they head to Mountain Village Downhill Park and pick up speed. Telluride features plenty of local bike shops that offer daily rentals, so you do not have to bring yours from home.

Form and Function Combined
It is all about the ski season here in Telluride, and as the large door swings open before you, revealing your home for the next week or so, you are sure to appreciate the set of wood benches offering space for ski boots or wet shoes beneath and hooks for winter coats and gear above. Follow the tile floors to the public spaces wherein much of your vacation will be spent, taking note of high ceilings and walls of windows that keep the cold out as they frame incredible views of the Colorado countryside. Flop down on the fluffy gray sofas, purposely situated to enjoy the views, the warmth of the stone fireplace, and the television that hangs above the fireplace high enough to be seen from anywhere in the room, yet still managing to not obstruct those views.
The dining room, the space destined to be the center of your indoor activities, offers a large and rustic wood table as the centerpiece, surrounded by some of the most comfortable upholstered dining chairs you have ever experienced! Located just outside the kitchen, and perched against more windows, this is where you will play games, devour meals, and make plans for your next Telluride adventures.

A secondary sitting area located on the second floor and stacked washer and dryer tucked away into a closet offer the interior finale of this tour, but there is still more to come! This is definitely one of the best Telluride vacation rentals available.
Indoor/Outdoor Living at Its Finest
As you might expect, winters in Telluride are cold, but that isn’t going to stop you from wanting to spend as much time outside as possible!

This special unit is a ski in/ski out property, so your ski adventures will be easily at hand in the winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxuries of this property year-round.

Telluride is known for its winter excitement as people from all over the world flock to play on our slopes and experience the cool beauty of the Colorado landscape covered in snow, but we aren’t just a one season vacation destination. In the spring, the promise of nature shines through in the budding trees, the flowers pushing their way through fertile soil, and the warmer temperatures lead us to the doorstep of summer, when hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities are popular things to do in Telluride in the fall. Fall holds a spot in our hearts, as the weather cools, the trees turn to shades of gold, and if you find us indoors, well, it must be late at night, because we can’t help but spend all our free time enjoying the beauty of the great Telluride outdoors! This guide to the good times you can have during your unforgettable visit to Colorado and your stay in our Lodging In Telluride seasonal sanctuaries will ensure that every minute of your getaway will be the best ones you have had in a very long time.
The Telluride Gondola
You will notice that the Gondola is not just a way of transportation; it is also the perfect way to experience a hint of the beauty of the Colorado landscape. Closing in October, but re-opening around Thanksgiving for the ski season and costing absolutely nothing to ride, it takes approximately 13 minutes to complete your “tour.” As you sit in the glass car, you can’t help but twist, turn, and snap pictures as you try to take in every angle of the scene unfolding around you! The mountains standing guard may already be snowcapped, and the valley below you will look as if it is on fire, alight with the colors of the trees dressed in their most colorful autumn “gear.” On cloudy days you may feel as if you can actually touch the clouds, and the views may be limited, but the joy you feel when the sun breaks through those clouds will be limitless! This is definitely one of the best things to do in Telluride in the fall!
Telluride Brewing Company, 156 Society Drive
The flavors of fall are our second favorite part of the season, and although pumpkin spice coffee is a top contender for best taste, a pumpkin porter always wins in the end! Telluride Brewing Company is known for its craft beers, adding new ones with the change of the season, and even if pumpkin porter isn’t on the menu, there is sure to be a fall flavored brew you will fall in love with! As we write this right now, the summer flavors are on tap, but their Face Down Brown, an American Brown Ale with 5.7 % ABV, is definitely looking promising for the cooler months!
Take a Hike
As we discussed earlier, fall is definitely a season we all want to be outside experiencing, and the simplest way to do so is by taking a hike. The trails that run through the region are numerous and can be difficult, such as the 2.5-mile hike up to Ajax Peak, (and another 2.5 miles back down) the more moderate hike to Bridal Veil Falls—this one is 2.2 miles one way, has a lower elevation, and ends with the breathtaking sight of the falls—or the easier hike through Bear Creek Canyon. It doesn’t matter which hike you take, however, as you will still be amazed at the idyllic landscape that surrounds you!
Telluride Autumn Classic (Cars & Colors), September 23 – 26
As the pandemic continues to waylay long made plans, the local festivals and events are slowly starting to make a comeback, much to our relief, and the Telluride Autumn Classic is one of those fall events making its presence known. Offering an incredible opportunity for celebrating all forms of transportation, including cars, motorcycles, and aircraft, this show is a favorite of everyone who comes to play. Featuring cars, motorcycles, and planes that are old, new, vintage, and restored, you will enjoy the contrast between high-tech vehicles with speedy engines and vibrant paint jobs and the natural beauty of the golf course on which most of the festival is held as you listen to live music, sample a taste of the town, and sip your new favorite wines. Tickets can be purchased for the entire event, or for as many days as you want to attend and come in VIP versions and general admission. Depending on which ticket you purchase, events can include a poker walk, admission to the closing Alpenglow celebration (hot air balloons that glow in the night sky!), photo contests, and so much more!
Play at Home
Simple moments can make all the difference, so why not stay home and play in your Lodging in Telluride fall escape? Sit by a roaring fire on a chilly fall day, sip Irish coffee on the balcony at sunset, and soak in hot tubs under the stars. All of these quiet moments can be experienced when you choose Lodging in Telluride. Reserve your favorite property and contact us today!
