Known as La Puerta De Colorado, Trinidad, CO is an emerging mountain town steeped in natural and architectural beauty. A traditional stop along the Santa Fe Trail, the once booming coal city has a long and colorful history. These features alone make it an ideal host town to modern day festival crowds, but what makes Trinidad so unique in comparison to other such towns is it's position along Amtrak's Southwest Chief Passenger line and Interstate 25. A one-of-a-kind crossroads; sitting both halfway between the legendary comedy and improv city of Chicago, Illinois and the global film and entertainment mecca of Los Angeles, California and only a few hours drive south of the top mid-sized comedy city in the county, Denver, Colorado and a few hours north of New Mexico's thriving film and art community. There is no other place quite like it.
Therefor Wally Wallace LLC, is partnering with a number of businesses throughout Trinidad, Colorado and the nation, to produce the First Annual Southwest Chief Bicycle & Comedy Festival happening Thursday May 2 – Sunday May 5, 2019 in bars, venues, and unique spaces throughout Trinidad, Colorado's downtown district. Venues are booked, hotels are readied, and the talent buying process has begun. We have partnered with Rubberside Down Cyclery to bring 10 pedicabs to town to transport comedians and guests from the train station, to hotels, venues and beyond. Join in on the fun!
