Insider Tips for A Taste of Colorado
We are just days away from the 28th Annual A Taste of Colorado. This festival was first held in the 1890s to boost public morale after the great Silver Crash. In 1983, nearly a century later, the Downtown Denver Partnership revived the festival, which is now attended by more than 500,000 people every year. From Rock n Roll to Country, ribs to ravioli, dancing to drumming and beers to smoothies, this unique festival offers something for everyone.
The festival grounds are extensive, so we suggest planning ahead when it comes to transportation, dining options and entertainment for you and the family. Here are a few of our insider tips for navigating the festival:
