What better way to end a summer full of beer and music festivals than with beer and a music festival?
Fortoberfest will end the summer music festival season German style this Saturday. This free music festival will have ten hours of live music in Old Town Square, authentic German food and ten seasonal beer offerings from Odell Brewing and High Country Beverage, perfect for autumn. Expect performances by some Fort Collins favorites including Gasoline Lollipops, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Taylor Scott Band and Whitewater Ramble.
This festival celebrating Fort Collin’s colorful beer and music scene was made possible by a donation from the Bohemian Foundation’s Music Programs, and will be presented by the Fort Collins Downtown Business Association.
