Since its debut in 2012, The Ride Festival has filled a unique niche in Colorado – and among U.S. festival offerings – as host to a carefully curated Americana/rock lineup offering world-class musical acts and introducing new, soon-to-break talent.
The Ride Festival’s close proximity to the many outdoor activities that Telluride and Southern Colorado have to offer make the festival a unique destination event.
