What You Can Do
Win a pair of 4-day passes with camping to the 2024 Telluride Bluegrass Festival when you offset your Festivarian Footprint!
festivating the typical Festivarian drives less (depending on travel), uses less energy (camping), and produces less waste than they would during their typical daily activities.
Since 2007 Planet Bluegrass has voluntarily estimated and purchased carbon offsets to neutralize the carbon footprint of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. This includes your travel and stay during the festival. By participating in this survey you are helping us refine our estimate and by purchasing your own offsets you are contributing to our goal of making the Telluride Bluegrass Festival carbon neutral.

Coordinated by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and Planet Bluegrass, the contest encourages all of us to raise the bar for sustainable and creative camping. All entrants are eligible for random daily prizes, while campsites that excel in achieving the highest levels of the Leave No Trace philosophy could win FREE camping and 4-day passes for the following year’s festival!
It takes the power of an entire community to host a sustainable festival experience. In order to cut down on waste, lessen the impact of your campsite, and keep the local wildlife wild, we all need to do our part to camp right. Together with the help of our partner, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, we have compiled a list of best camping practices to implement when you visit any of our festivals.
