We won’t let go of you, summer! Not without a fight! (Or without a lot of fun, anyway.) Here are some Labor Day events that sounded particularly good to us, so we’re declaring them to be In Good Taste!
Through Sept. 4
Colorado State Fair in Pueblo, offers carnival rides, livestock and horse shows, parades, country concerts, an arts exhibition, a fiesta weekend and one of the largest pro rodeos in the country. Go for the Fair but stick around and explore. We are enamoured with Pueblo’s river walk scene, artwork and historic yet modern vibe.
A Taste of Colorado brings more than 500,000 people to Civic Center Park for a four-day festival of offerings of more 50 area restaurants, 275 marketplace artisans and vendors, six stages and educational programs promoting the diverse cultural and Western heritage of the region and our particular favorite, the food chats and demos.
Jazz Aspen Labor Day Experience – There were still tickets left for Daryl Hall & John Oates and Lake Street Drive. Don’t be left “in an awful way” by not going (Hall & Oates fans will get it).
Annette restaurant in the Stanley Marketplace, will open from 9am-2pm for a special Labor Day Brunch to help usher in the autumn season. Stop by for dishes like the house-cured lox with caper cream cheese, dill and english muffin. AfterLabor Day, they’ll transition into autumn hours which will eliminate lunch but offer an expanded happy hour menu. BTW, this week, Annette is dedicating 10% of their sales to Hurricane Harvey Relief.
