Family Tent

The Family Tent provides whimsical, musical, and educational activities for children and their parents.

Activities for kids include the family area inside the Festival grounds, hiking, horseback riding, and other activities in the town of Telluride and Mountain Village. We are not a daycare facility so we ask that parents sign in and accompany their children while in this area at all times. The Family Tent is open from noon-5pm on Thursday and 10am to 5pm Friday thru Sunday. Most activities are free.

Family Tent Activities

Living Folklore Clowns

Since 1998, Living Folklore has been making the Telluride Bluegrass weekend just as fun for children as it is for adults. The kids area offers a magical refuge for the whole family with kids yoga, storytelling, crafts, interactive performances with live characters, and processions. With this year’s theme of Alice in Candyland, Living Folklore will be bringing elements from Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland to life with giant puppets and a life-size children’s board game. The whole weekend builds toward the Sunday parade as we learn juggling, clown-yoga, listen to stories, sing along to live music, and more. Come play with us and experience the magic of The Family Tent!

Betty Hoops

On Saturday and Sunday, come join Betty Hoops once again for the best craft party of the summer. Kids and adults can decorate their own hoop using fuzzy fabrics, rainbow colored tapes, and 3D stickers. Adult hoopers can experience the newest and only collapsible hoop on the market. The Gaiam Hoop is a top of the line six segment collapsible hoop with a soft foam padding. Betty Hoops will have many for you to try and will be teaching Hoop Dance Saturday and Sunday!
