The Telluride Jazz Patron Experience

Telluride Jazz Patrons enjoy the highest level of everything the Jazz Festival has to offer throughout the festival. The weekend starts with the Patron and Sponsor Party on Thursday, August 2. The party includes a dinner buffet and cocktail party along with some great jazz. It’s a terrific opportunity to meet fellow Patrons, Artists and Sponsors and get the very latest information on the weekend’s events.

Your Patron pass is also your invitation to champagne and hors d’oeuvres at the Patron Pavilion in Telluride Town Park to Open the 36th Telluride Jazz Festival on Friday, August 5. The Patron Pavilion is open throughout the Jazz Celebration during festival hours and it is here that you will enjoy appetizers and dinner on Friday, a barbeque and dinner on Saturday and brunch and dinner on Sunday. In addition, there is a bar offering special libations from our sponsors. All food and drink in the Patron Pavilion is complimentary.

Special Stage-side Seating at the Town Park Main Stage is another Patron benefit that is quite popular. You will enjoy very close proximity to the performers and seating is provided in this area for your comfort, including a “quiet tent” for those wishing to enjoy the current performance undisturbed. You have secured access to this area and are welcome to come and go as you please.

Be sure to stay for the Closing Party Sunday evening, August 7. You will want to say goodbye to the jazz lovers with whom you spent this wonderful weekend; enjoy some more sweet and savory appetizers and cocktails with some cool jazz- along with our heartfelt thanks for being a Jazz Patron.
