Denver’s time to shine
Move over, Italy. The second North American Slow Food Nations conference and festival is coming to Denver July 14–16 (the first was in San Francisco in 2008). Featuring national leaders in the heritage food movement and sustainable agriculture—including farmers, chefs, food artisans and educators—the weekend will be packed with tastings, talks, panels, workshops, classes, tours and ticketed events like a “Colorado-made Block Party.” The general public will have free access to the Taste Marketplace, featuring over 100 exhibitors who will sample and sell their products. There will also be international pavilions at Denver Union Station and Larimer Square; panels and other fee-based events are also open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
