The Taste Walkabout 2022
Sept. 8 — 5:30pm-7:30pm
THANK YOU to our sponsors and to all participating restaurants for a fantastic event! We can’t wait to do it again in 2023.
Downtown Fort Collins was hopping on Sept. 8th, with some of the city’s most venerable restaurants serving up special appetizers for hundreds of folks during The Taste Walkabout—a self-guided food-sampling tour through the heart of the Choice City. It’s a culinary adventure like none other, and all proceeds directly benefit the Food Bank’s hunger-relief efforts in Larimer County. Stay tuned in 2023 for details on next year’s event.
