18th Annual Taste of Fort Collins Event this Weekend

Starting this Friday afternoon and continuing through the weekend, Fort Collins will be hosting Taste of Fort Collins with food, drinks, live music and a kids zone for community members to gather for a good time.

According to Sydney Jackson-Clockston, an event coordinator, this year will raise funds for Kiwanis Club of Fort Collins.


“In 2013 we saw about 50,000 during the three day festival and we are expecting the same, if not more​ (weather permitting ​, of course!​),”Jackson-Clockston said.

Taste of Fort Collins is about bringing the community together through tasty food and drinks with great music.

“I have never been but I am looking forward to hearing the good jams, socializing and there is this amazing wine mix called Frappe Vino, that I am going to buy,” said Sina Good, an international studies senior.

According to Jackson-Clockston, Taste of Fort Collins has always had great partnerships within the community, but this year they have added a second stage for more local bands to get the chance to play.

In addition to the upgraded music opportunities there will be two beer gardens, a wine pavilion as well as a craft beer pavilion.

“If you are a foodie like we are​,​ you will as excited as we are to know that there will be over 50 food vendors for you to choose from ​. Odell Brewing Co. and New Belgium Brewery are again the exclusive beer sponsors of Taste.”
