The Taste of Colorado has fully re-invented itself for its post-pandemic return.  The Labor Day weekend event – a celebration of local food, music and art – takes place entirely on the 16th Street Mall (rather than sprawled out at Civic Center Park). The music will come from three stages: “14er Stage” at 16th & Welton, the “High Plains Stage” at 16th & Arapahoe, and the “Westword Stage” at Glenarm Plaza at Denver Pavilions.

Bands include Chris Daniels & The Kings (Saturday, 6:30 p.m. at the High Plains Stage), Ballet Folklorico Baile Caliente (Sunday 2:30 p.m. at the 14er Stage), Biff Gore Ambassador of Soul (Monday, 1:00 p.m. at the 14er Stage), Ron Ivory & One On One (2:00 p.m. at the High Plains Stage), The Derek Banach Quintet (4:30 p.m. at the 14er Stage), and Soul School (6:30 p.m. at the High Plains Stage).

Fifty-plus food vendors will be located at Skyline Park, Food Truck Row (along Arapahoe) and at brick and mortar locations along the 16th Street Mall.

A Kids Activity Zone at Skyline Park and artistic diversions make the 38th Taste of Colorado a place to hang out, see and be seen.

There’s an app to help navigate the festival. Details at A Taste of Colorado.
