Taste of Colorado Will Return in New Format Labor Day Weekend 2021, Announces Call for Local Artists, Musicians, and Restaurants


DENVER (May 17, 2021) – The Downtown Denver Partnership is proud to announce the return of Taste of Colorado for its 38th year, this year in a new format that will be a downtown-wide celebration of local food, music, and art. Set to take place over Labor Day Weekend (September 4 – 6, 2021), this year’s Taste of Colorado will take place all over Downtown Denver, with attractions throughout the center city.

“Taste of Colorado is a well-loved tradition that spans generations,” said Sharon Alton, Vice President of Downtown Experience at the Downtown Denver Partnership, “We’re proud to bring Taste back as we emerge from the pandemic, this year in a new format that will be a true celebration of our city’s culture and everything that our city’s artists, musicians, and restauranteurs have to offer. Never has it been more important to highlight all things local, and we can’t wait to do just alongside our community over Labor Day Weekend.”


The Downtown Denver Partnership has issued a call for local artists and musicians interested in participating in Taste of Colorado.

Taste of Colorado’s Urban Art Showcase presented by The VF Foundation will be an intersection of art, community, nature and Downtown Denver’s urban public realm.
