Durango Blues Train

Twice a year, the Durango Train is taken over by blues performances. Six nights of entertainment take place, with two at the beginning of summer and two at the end. These nights draw hundreds of visitors to the train for an evening of music, fun and craft brews. The train leaves the depot in Durango at 6:30 PM and returns around 10:30 PM. The lineup for each performance is announced 2-3 months in advance, giving you plenty of time to plan ahead for your visit.

The Music

The Blues Train features six live blues performances inside the train coaches with a festive musical environment. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach. Four coaches have seats while two are open with no seats for dancing. This one-of-a-kind live music experience encourages passengers to dance from one train car to the next to sample each performance.
