Parking Options in Telluride, Mountain Village & the Airport

RV & Trailer Offsite Parking

The Town of Telluride and Telluride Mountain Village are small communities with limited parking accommodations. With the anticipated amount of show cars, driving cars, trailers and car haulers coming to this small community we have worked diligently to make sure all vehicles are accommodated. Most lodging options will not be able to accommodate any trailer parking. However, the Festival will provide separate, additional  parking for participating car owners who need additional parking for trailers and car haulers. This information will be provided to you in your confirmation packet after you register.

Offsite RV Parking: 

Special Offsite Festival RV Parking. If you have a car, motorcycle, snowmobile or Warbird registered in the event or, if you are a volunteer, vendor or sponsor at the 2020 Festival: The Festival is anticipating having a limited number of RV parking spaces available at an additional $50 per RV fee. The $50 fee will cover parking from Wednesday, September 23th at 12pm through Monday, September 28th at 9am. This is a flat $50 fee and will apply if you are staying all 5 nights, just the weekend or only one night.

These sites are primitive (NO SERVICES: NO Dumping, NO Electric, NO Water, NO Trash Receptacles) so RV’s must be self contained for your length of stay.  This is a ‘Leave No Trace’ space. Space is limited and spots must be reserved prior to the Festival. If you have a car/motorcycle trailer that needs to be accommodated, your trailer may also be parked in this lot.

Other RV options: RV parking is extremely limited in the Town Park camp ground and is first come first served. Absolutely NO CAMPING in cars or RVs is allowed with in the Town of Telluride city limits, this includes any parking lots, or in the Lawson Hill Ball Field areas. For information regarding other RV options in the area, please visit:
