Things To Do This Weekend In Colorado

The temps are hot and so the fun in the sun must begin! After an almost nonexistent summer in 2020 as far as fun things to do, and a half summer last year, it's so nice to have our staple Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming events returning to what they've always been. While there are still extra safety precautions in place, it's closer to "normal" this year than it has been for a minute. Huge live events, giant food festivals, and amazing live music from local and national acts. You do know there's an event that has all of those things, yeah?

Taste Of Fort Collins Is This Weekend

After a huge sold-out event last July, the Taste of Fort Collins, produced locally by Townsquare Media, is back for 2022 and it's all going down this weekend in Washington Park in Fort Collins. This will be the 26th event and we couldn't be more excited about it. It's literally Northern Colorado's biggest food festival with more food to try than you can shake a stick at. Plenty of actual food on a stick as well, I'm sure. Local distilleries and breweries from all over the state will be on hand to make sure you're not too thirsty during this gorgeous NoCo weekend, it's just going to be amazing.

My first Taste of Fort Collins and the only one I got to be on stage hosting was back in 2015 when we brought Andy Grammer to the event. That was also the weekend that Smashmouth had a complete meltdown over bread. My pal Dave recalls that hellish experience with this very detailed story as he watched it happen from the stage; it is hilarious.

Saturday, eight local performers from all over Colorado will fill the stage all day with some amazing live music and entertainment all leading up to Saturday night's main event, the Cold War Kids.

Sunday, we'll have eight more incredible local acts all leading up to T.I. on the main stage in the evening. I've never seen him perform live, so I'm very excited about his performance.
