Free Concerts, Food and More at Free Taste of Colorado in Denver – August 31- Sept 3

It is almost time for the annual “A Taste of Colorado“, Colorado’s annual FREE Labor Day weekend celebration. Featuring entertainers showcasing the state’s cultural traditions and diversity, the four-day, free admission, food, music, and entertainment Festival will take place Labor Day weekend, Friday August 31 to Sept. 3 (one of our birthdays), in Downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park. Now in its 28th year as the state’s largest free-admission outdoor event, the Taste draws more than 500,000 visitors annually.

Lou Gramm (the voice of Foreigner), Spin Doctors, The Pointer Sisters, Burton Cummings, Head East and G. Love & Special Sauce will headline the Main
Stage at the 28th annual event.  Check out the full lineup here

In addition to the Main Stage, four other entertainment stages located throughout the Festival will serve up a continuous menu of music, featuring rock, country, jazz, classic rock, blues, and ethnic music and dance groups.

The Fine Dining area will host some of Denver’s finest restaurants. The Culinary Showcase features local and nationally-renowned chef demonstrations creating simple, yet elegant meals.
