Historic Larimer Square and Denver’s sunny, bluebird skies are the backdrops for the third annual Slow Food Nations. The festival launches with a Colorado-themed block party and wraps up with the Zero Waste Community Supper made with tasty, unused food ingredients from the weekend. What’s in between is just as impressive, with more than 100 cooking demonstrations, food tastings, family activities, block parties and talks centered around food that is clean, fair and good for all. Best of all, festival entry and numerous activities are totally free and select ticketed events start at $20.
Honored guests Alice Waters and Ron Finley will be joined by headliners Drew Deckman, Kristen Essig, Caroline Glover, Sandor Katz, Adrian Miller, Kevin Mitchell, Davia Nelson, Urvashi Rangan, Steven Satterfield, Alex Seidel, Alon Shaya and Pierre Thiam in leading workshops, talks and demonstrations around this year’s theme “Where Tradition Meets Innovation.”
