Ranch Foods Direct owner Mike Callicrate will serve as a delegate

It’s a mash-up of flavorful fun and serious aims at the mid-July food fest hosted by the International Slow Food organization. Two full days of educational activities are free and open to the public. On July 15 and 16 head over to the Taste Marketplace at Larimer Square (below) for a free culinary adventure that will tickle all your senses. With international pavilions and local producers, you’ll want to bring your friends and family to this grand street fair and food party.

Preceding the free food fair, RFD’s Mike Callicrate will join hundreds of delegates from around the world to discuss strategies for creating a better, more just food system for all. He’ll be part of a panel speaking on how to “break the corporate stranglehold” on Friday, July 14 (delegates only) at the McNichols Civic Center.
