The 2nd Annual Telluride Cup and Conference (TCC) is a Colorado owned and operated connoisseurs cannabis cup. It features a wholesale/retail expo, educational symposiums with Cannabis industry leaders, headline concerts with famous artists, and a cannabis competition. New to TCC this year, we will be presenting two speakeasies, one of which will be a VIP location featuring competition entries for a people’s choice award.
The San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado have created one of the most beautiful and unique mountain settings on the planet. The historic town of Telluride is located toward the end of a 16-mile long box canyon at an elevation of 8,750 feet. The town is crested by 7 waterfalls, to include Bridal Veil Falls with a 365 foot drop ranking it the highest in the state. All of this is adjacent to the chic and modern Town of Mountain Village, a fully pedestrian enclave at almost 10,000 feet, connected to Telluride with a free public gondola. Telluride has been referred to as "If this ain’t heaven, heaven can wait".
TCC is the only ski-in/ski-out cannabis celebration in the world. We take pride in being the Telluride ski area’s winter kick off event in the pedestrian only Town of Mountain Village. TCC is accessible by car, skis, or the free gondola system from the historic town of Telluride. Our remote, yet accessible “all under one roof” mid- mountain location in the state of the art 1,000 capacity Telluride Conference Center redefines world class.
The setting is only the beginning. Telluride's cutting edge, trendsetting, and think tank inspired community reputation comes historically from the local power plant's claim to fame; "The world's first hydroelectric commercial system to produce and transmit alternating current." TCC adds to the aforementioned reputation as the exclusive think tank networking platform for the industries best growers, producers, and innovators in the inspiring epic mountain setting of Telluride. TCC prides itself in raising awareness within the new legal paradigm, supporting profound health properties, and economic and social value of cannabis.
In addition, we feature educational opportunities for the following:
Telluride has a long and sorted deep history in the outlaw culture, dating back to 1889 when Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank here. This solidified when the subculture of the generation who "turned on, tuned in and dropped out" took over the former mining town in the early 70s. Telluride's association with marijuana outlaw culture has been captured in the film "SCRAPPLE", the song "Smugglers Blues" by The Eagles, in politics by having the first Rastafarian elected official, and countless publications. Appropriately, the Centennial state became the first place in the world to legalize marijuana, inadvertently legitimizing outlaw culture.
Telluride's celebrated outlaw culture, remote yet accessible unparalleled mountain setting, ingrained marijuana acculturation, and think tank inspired community makes the Telluride Cup and Conference a premier Cannabis event.
