Durango Blues Train: May 31 & June 1

May 31 - June 1

Event Description

It’s never too early to start planning for the summer of a lifetime! Save the dates and mark your calendars for the perfect way to start or end your summer in Colorado! Join us for an exciting, moving musical experience of live blues on board the Historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad’s coal-fired, steam-powered train traveling through the spectacular and breathtaking canyons of the San Juan National Forest.

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, while passengers are free to dance their way from coach to coach. Four coaches have seats while two are open with no seats for dancing. Enjoy an evening on the rails with some of Colorado’s best craft beer, cider and wine along with spectacular scenery. To cap it all off, passengers will experience breathtaking sunset views along the “Highline,” a world famous section of the railroad, as the train crawls along craggy cliffs 400 feet high above the Wild Animas River, known to be the most beautiful section of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Mark your calendars! Tickets for the Durango Blues Trains on May 31 & June 1 go on sale Wednesday, February 13th at 10 am (MT). Tickets will be available online. Tickets are very limited and will sell out in advance with Saturday going first. Tickets are $119 per person per night plus a historic preservation fee of 7%. Tickets for August 16 & 17 will go on sale on March 28th. Please note, the Durango Blues Train is limited to ages 21+.
