About This Event

The Downtown Denver Partnership is transforming the community tradition, Taste of Colorado in 2021! We are thrilled to announce that this year’s event will take place throughout the streets of Downtown Denver over Labor Day weekend, September 4-6, to celebrate our city and diverse food, music, and culture.

As we continue our work to build an economically resilient Center City, we have shifted the look of A Taste of Colorado in 2021. Our primary focus continues to be the health and safety of our community and downtown businesses. If you are interested in participating in the event as a restaurant, marketplace vendor, musician or sponsor, please visit www.atasteofcolorado.com for more information.
