A Triumphant Return

Like many events, A Taste of Colorado took a break in 2020 due to the pandemic. Now that the festival is back, guests and participants alike are determined to make it better than ever before. One of the biggest changes is the festival’s location. This year, A Taste of Colorado is taking over downtown. You can find the lively array of vendors, food trucks, music stages, and more in the 16th Street Mall.

Get a Taste

What can you expect to see at A Taste of Colorado this year? While a lot goes down at this festival, the main attraction is always the food. A Taste of Colorado is all about supporting local food businesses. From your favorite bustling food trucks to the best breweries in town, there’s a vendor to satisfy any craving you might have.

Celebrating Colorado businesses has always been important, but it’s become even more significant over the past year. A Taste of Colorado exists to highlight Colorado cuisine and the passionate souls behind it. After a year of uncertainty and social distancing, gathering with the community to support and celebrate local businesses is more important than ever before.
