1000% required.  It gets very cold at night and this year is looking to be on the colder side of average!

One more thing, we are arriving Thursday as soon as possible, driving in early from Denver. Do you think we will be able to find a place to set up our tent or do you have any advice. Iím a bit worried. Itís just two of us.

If it's just 2 of you, you'll be fine but you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for open spots.  By that time what might look like too small of a spot at first glance could work.  Ask around, this is a friendly crew and they'll point you in the right direction.

If you get there and can't find anyone to help, come look me up at Camp Trailer Smash in Bear Creek near the waterfall.  If I'm not around, just respond to this thread or send me a PM and I'll keep an eye out for your message.  I PMed you my cell number as well  Thumbs Up

If I do not have a TBGF ticket, can I still camp in Town Park from Saturday-Wednesday? I plan to leave Telluride on Thursday morning. Thanks for explaining!

Although people can visit Town Park during that period it's quite likely you will be asked to leave by Wednesday without a wristband.  Cheers

This will be my second year coming to Telluride for the Bluegrass Festival and camping in Town Park. Last year we got there late Wednesday and barely found a spot to put our tents. This year, we are not messing around. We plan to be there bright and early Saturday for the land rush.

Question: since we are planning to arrive in town on Friday before the land rush, what is our best option for accommodations before Town Park opens to campers? If we arrive on Friday, would we be able to camp out in Town Park overnight before the rush? Or should we plan to find an AirBnB or something in town for Friday night?

Good call.  You will not be disappointed. While I love the festival, pre-fest Saturday to Wednesday are my favorite days.

what is our best option for accommodations before Town Park opens to campers? If we arrive on Friday, would we be able to camp out in Town Park overnight before the rush? Or should we plan to find an AirBnB or something in town for Friday night?
Town Park is usually full with ABGATers that Friday, so there won't be spots available.  You'd need to talk to camps and ask if they have free space.  With 2 people and 1 small tent, that may be feasible.
In the past, I've camped outside Telluride, as far away as Ridgway state park, slept in my car at the end of the valley (not recommended/legal), or stayed at motels outside town to save money (e.g. Montrose, Norwood).  Lately I haven't wanted to do the early morning drive and have enjoyed "one last night in a bed", so have been finding a place in town.  AirBnBs can be tough to find for 1 night.  I've stayed at the Mountainside Inn and find it comfortable for a reasonable price.
