As promised when I first wrote about the Taste of Colorado, here we go with a detailed review, schedule of events, and some ways you can have fun with your family at one of Denver’s funnest, most talked about events of the year! You won’t wanna miss the Taste of Colorado. It runs daily, with free admission August 31- September 3, which is Labor Day Weekend. The best website to get information especially for family fun events and kids’ concerts is this link through ColoradoKids.com.
And if you enter here, through Colorado Kids, you can win $50 in tickets for your family to spend on food, entertainment, and drink at the free admission festival held at downtown’s Civic Center Park each year.
There is something for everyone. Lots of food and drink vendors scattered throughout, and of course, there are kids events too including crafts for the kids, a lego exhibit and play area where kids’ imaginations can run wild, and of course, the rides. The Kidzone is open daily – check out the hours here and this area is a family-friendly area offering play equipment and a great variety of free, hands-on craft activities for children of all ages. Enjoy Carnival Rides and Games Saturday through Monday, presented by KOOL 105. EARLY BIRD wristbands can be purchased for $15 from 10:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., Saturday through Monday. These wristbands are good for unlimited rides on the day of purchase until 5 p.m. ALL DAY wristbands can be purchased for $25 anytime from 10:30 a.m. to two hours before closing Saturday through Monday and are good for unlimited rides on the day purchased until closing. Individual rides are also available for generally two to ten tickets per ride. Check out all the fun family events and schedule of events for mainstage and more here.
If music is your thing, then check out the schedule for the main stage as well. The tickets for rides can be bought in increments of 15 for $10 and believe me, you will use them all and go back for more. I would say in any given Taste of Colorado that I have attended, you can easily spend upwards of $40 for a family so bring cash or there are credit card machines as well and ATMs. Hope to see you there!
