When it comes to great festival grub, Denver is about more than just turkey legs and funnel cakes. Every year, the Taste of Colorado takes over Civic Center Park, at Broadway and Colfax, on Labor Day weekend to showcase some of the city's best food. This year's celebration runs for four days starting Friday, September 1, with more than fifty restaurants and food vendors dishing out their finest alongside a marketplace packed with arts and crafts. Local and national live music on six stages and artisan demonstrations will help keep things lively. Admission to the Taste is free, but you'll need to purchase food and drink tickets inside if you want to partake. Get all the details at atasteofcolorado.com; festival hours are 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.
