If you have ever traveled to Colorado, you may have realized that some of the most laid-back, friendliest people live in the state. I absolutely love the Colorado lifestyle- relaxed, organic, and picturesque scenery wherever you look.
Last weekend, my family and I traveled to an altitude of 8,750 feet to attend the Blues & Brews Festival in Telluride, Colo. I’m fortunate to live three hours away from this beautiful mountain-town because it happens to be one of my favorite places in this world!
This festival was spectacular. Lemme tell ya, if you are not a blues fan, attend this festival and you will automatically be swaying and clapping to the sounds of trumpets and raspy voices!
The first night we were there, ZZ Top took the stage! Um…AHHH! I grew up listening to classic rock n’ roll. My dad would cook dinner every night to The Beatles, ZZ Top, and Tom Petty blaring out of his stereo system. Such an exciting night under the stars and dancing away to “Gimme All Your Lovin.”
The next day, hundreds of microbreweries sprung up canopies and served chilled beer samples. Great Divide Brewing Co. in Denver and Left Hand Brewing Co. in Longmont, Colo. were among the countless microbreweries serving tasty brews at the festival.
Then, on our last night, Gregg Allman graced the stage and performed his easy-listening tunes. Phenomenal!
If you have a desire to go to a music festival, consider attending the Blues & Brews festival in Telluride! Amazing music, refreshing beer, and great company…it’s definitely something worth traveling to!
