Labor Day Best Bet for Kids: Taste of Colorado’s New Line-up!

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, A Taste of Colorado will be held over Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 3 – Sept. 6, in Civic Center Park of Downtown Denver and includes FREE admission.

In addition to the always-delicious food booths, there will be plenty of music, magic, clowns and puppets on the KidzStage and the KidZone has play equipment and a great variety of free hands-on craft activities for children of all ages. Kids and adults can also enjoy Carnival Rides and Games. Here are just some of the new kid-friendly features & exciting performances at Taste this year:

* Kudzidza performs an authentic, African, interactive show Saturday on the KidzStage at 2:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. Unlike many available African performers who are not from Africa, the members of Kudzidza were raised singing, drumming, telling stories, dancing, and playing their native music in Africa.

* The Lukasiewicz Family Fiddler Band will perform Friday at 2 p.m. on the Country Stage. Specializing in Texas-style fiddling, bluegrass, and gospel hymns, they are a large family of mostly adopted children of varying nationalities, all home-schooled, and all taught the fiddle by their parents.

* The Boy Scouts of America is touring the country to give people an exciting, hands-on view of the organization’s 100 year history. Adventure Base 100 unfolds into 10,000-square-feet of immersive Scout-related experiences. The exhibit will include: a high-adventure ropes course for all visitors who are more than four feet tall and weigh less than 250 pounds; a multi-sensory experience that will offer visitors the sights, smells, and sounds of scouting via the IMAX-like video, “Go! Dome;” an overview about what it takes to become an Eagle Scout, the highest level of scouting; a chance to speak with members of local councils to learn more about scouting; and a traveling scouting museum featuring an overview of the Boy Scouts of America’s history, including a display of rare artifacts collected by the organization over the last 100 years.
