Taste of Fort Collins
For one weekend each year, Taste of Fort Collins offers a chance to come face-to-face and mouth-to-fork with some of the best food, artwork, and music from vendors throughout the area—plus a few nationally known guests. The aromas of grilled meats, pizza, and international cuisine waft over the festival grounds. Trying lots of things is also encouraged at Wilbur's Wine and Beer Pavilions, ready to cool down the crowd with wines from around the world and Colorado microbrews.
As for the soundtrack, everything from reggae to hip hop to classic rock graces the main stage. A couple dozen acts perform each year, and the grand finale of each evening is a set by a national rock band cunningly lured to Fort Collins by wafting the scent of barbecue into its tour bus.
The festival's grounds include the Pedersen Toyota Mainstage, a second stage near the Kidz Zone, hundreds of vendor booths showcase local artwork and goods. It's a celebration of summer at Northern Colorado's largest family friendly festival. Proceeds support the Kiwanis Club of Fort Collins, which run many programs to benefit young people in the community.
