Since 1895

Originally dubbed the Festival of Mountain and Plain, the historic festival has brought together Coloradans since 1895 as a true celebration of our state's rich heritage — through food, music, art, and more.

The decades old tradition is transforming in 2021 as a festival throughout the streets of Downtown Denver over Labor Day Weekend, September 4-6, 2021. The festival will be an authentic and spirited union of sights, sounds, tastes, and color as we celebrate together. The Downtown Denver Partnership is thrilled to be bringing back Taste of Colorado in 2021 because it's more than a festival, it's in our nature.

Proudly Produced by
