July and August are warmer than June and Sept.

Would need to know more about what you like to suggest a fest. Mushroom is good (mid-late August), Ride Fest (mid July) has good music.There are smaller fests most weekends. It is also fun to be there when there is no festival. It is a great summer location. I would go anytime after July 4th and before end of August.

ANY time between May 20th-Sept 20th is a pretty safe bet for Telluride.

I would avoid any of the big music festival weekends with the young'uns though.

The Bluegrass Festival is about the 3rd week of June (I don't know the exact dates for 2016), town will be jam packed then. Probably not the best time to visit, not a great crowd to have around kids, in many cases.

Thanks. The hot air balloon and film festival would be my picks but the dates don't work. I think we will pick weekdays without a fest to avoid the crowds.

In the summer they have children's programs. He may want to do one and free you up to do something alone for a few hours.

What about the 4th of July? Is it super crowded?

4th of July is crowded but nothing like Bluegrass Festival, and it is a lot of fun.

The 4th of July is about as crowded as this town gets all summer actually. But it's only for one day.
