While some in Colorado look at Memorial Day Weekend as the unofficial kickoff to summer, others look to this longstanding Colorado event as the kickoff to warmer weather and summer fun. That event is finally here, let's go!

If you've looked at the weather forecast this week, it appears that summer in Colorado has finally arrived! In your world, what triggers your mind to acknowledge that the hottest season of the year has arrived?

Technically summer doesn't officially begin until June 20th, but in Colorado, it's the 2nd weekend that marks the unofficial kickoff. Why? Because the Taste of Fort Collins is here, that's why!

Taste Of Fort Collins Kicks Off Summer 2024 This Weekend, June 8th, and 9th

The second weekend each June marks the annual Colorado summertime tradition known as the Taste of Fort Collins. It's a two-day food, drink, and music festival that has grown to be one of the biggest events in the entire state, selling out each year.

This year, along with all of the fantastic food, including Bigs Meat Wagon, The Waffle Lab, and more, as well as nothing but awesome locally brewed beers and beverages, the live music lineup has people buzzing.

Taste Of Fort Collins Music Line-Up

A perfect blend of fantastic local Colorado bands and some huge national artists make the Taste of Fort Collins music line-up another home run for 2024. New artist Knox ("Not the 1975") will feature a special acoustic performance before Saturday Night's headliner, Andy Grammer. Saturday's full lineup is...

1:00: Ben Pu
2:30: Elektric Animals
3:30: Capture This
4:45: Co-Stanza

Tickets are still available right now at TasteOfFortCollins.com but are going fast. Pro-tip, get them before Saturday or pay more at the gates before they sell out. You can also buy weekend passes for $31 until Friday, as those will not be available the day of the event.

It's one of the biggest and best food, drink, and music festivals in Colorado, and the weather looks perfect all weekend, so grab your passes, and we'll see you in Old Town this weekend for another epic Taste of Fort Collins!
