Ahhh.  That is a GREAT help Skubes!  I now feel enlightened.  ha  Thanks!   Clap
One other question....What (and where) is this 'camp host'?  Is the camp host the Planet Bluegrass folks set up and working the gate or something else 'in' the campground?

The camp hosts are official PBG volunteers.  They sell ice and often have quarters for the showers (but bring your own just in case).  They're very helpful when you have questions, and I think the lost and found is housed there.  They're to your left as you enter TP at the round-about.

This isn't necessarily specific to Town Park, but how are the grocery stores in Telluride? Should I stock up before I get there, or are there good groceries in town? I'm thinking there probably are, but, you never know. :)

Sorry, but not without a Town Park camping pass.
Even if he has a festival ticket he'd have to also purchase a Lawson Hill camping pass just to stay the night there.

Hmmm...ok...maybe we'll just see what's lingering around at the gates throughout the weekend...if someone doesn't sell their ticket, might be able to pick one up for him.  Thanks for the quick reply!  :)

We're camping at Warner field and I know the campground opens at 9am on Wednesday.  What are the procedures and timelines for staging for the opening?

First timer here.  Bringing kids (3 and 5).  We'll be rollin' in a little red wagon - hoping we can load it on the gondola.  Anyway, what's the deal with chairs?  The FAQ says low back only if you want to be in front of the sound-booth.   Where is the sound-booth?  Are regular 'camping' chairs ok if I'm in the shade tent area?

Thanks everyone, just not what I had expected. I didn't know there was a tarp run...seems wrong to me like, first come, first served, no spot saving for days...it screws people like us. It will all be fine and I'm sure we'll find a place that is ok but I'd be lying if I said I was as excited as I was...now seems stressful. We get 30 minutes to scout for a spot, make friends, get invited to put camp there and then fully unload; that's nuts.

Hey Scrogans! Last year was my first year in TP. We got in about 4 on Tuesday. We had no problem finding a spot and actually were pumped at camping by the river. I admit I had some anxiety when we first got there about having come too late and what not. That went away immediately after we got set up. Like Al says, everything works. I've been looking forward to getting back since June last year when we left. It really was one of the best times I've ever had because of all the great people in TP. As a result I'm bringing my son and daughter with so they can have the same experience.

I'd say enjoy the journey for what it's worth. You're in a fortunate group that is lucky enough to be in TP for this great festival.


Hi Scrogan's-Now that the festival is over, hoping you can tell us that everything went well and all the great encouragement you got from fellow Festivarians was on point and you had a great time in Town Park!

What a great time I had my first time at TBGF in Town Park campground. We left Denver late Monday night, pulled into TP around 6 am, found an awesome spot for three tents right on the bank of the river, Bridal Veil in view from our canopy. We could hear much of the music right from camp. What a wonderful community. I heard Yonder Mountain String Band playing in the campground Tuesday night, ate at a lovely potluck supper on Wednesday. Really an awesome time.

The experience was not without setbacks. I have asthma and COPD, and the thin oxygen was not good for me at all. I ended up at the ER in town on Saturday (the PB staff and Telluride EMTs were so helpful - clearly I was not the first to have that problem), and we left on Sunday morning, unfortunately. I'm a huge Elephant Revival fan and really looked forward to hearing them at Telluride.

The scenery, the town, the music, the people, the festival operation: all first rate!  Thumbs Up
