Autumn Classic Poker Walk

Looking for an event beyond just the cars? The Autumn Classic Poker Walk is a great way to get familiar with the beautiful surroundings of the spectacular mountain destination we call home.

Not a poker player? Never fear! All you need to participate in the Autumn Classic Poker Walk is a sense of adventure and a willingness to explore picturesque spots in the towns of Mountain Village and Telluride. In order to explore, you can either walk and ride the free gondola, or drive to each of the 5 locations to be ‘dealt your cards’. Feel free to take your time to take in the fall foliage, just make sure you return your scorecard to the Autumn Classic Lounge before 1:30pm to be eligible to win fabulous prizes! This event is open to all 4-day GA and 4-day VIP ticket holders.

The Process:

10:00am – 11:30am: Check in at the Autumn Classic Ticket Tent in Heritage Plaza on Friday between 10:00am-11:30am and pick up your Scorecard and Poker Walk Map.

10:00a-1:30pm: Set out to the 5 designated ”Dealer” locations and draw one card from the Festival “Dealer” at each location. Each “Dealer” will mark your scorecard with the card you have drawn at each location. You do not need to visit each location in the order that they are listed, in fact, we encourage you to mix it up! You’ll have plenty of time to get to the 5 locations in the 2.5 hours allotted, so take your time, enjoy a cup coffee or a short lunch…just make sure to turn your scorecard in again at the Autumn Classic Ticket Tent in Heritage Plaza by 1:30pm.

1:30pm: Deadline to return your scorecard in at the Autumn Classic Ticket Tent in Heritage Plaza, Mountain Village.

1:30pm: Winner announced at the Autumn Classic Lounge
