In addition to the draw of Aspen’s renowned winter recreation, exciting summer events and celebrations also bring many visitors to the region. There may be none more exciting than the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. This year’s 40th Food & Wine Classic will be on June 16th-18th primarily at Wagner Park, a large park in the heart of the city. It brings high-profile chefs, critics, restaurateurs, and foodies together in a one-of-a-kind setting for a weekend of non-stop food and drink. 

As a weekend full of dining, drinking, and discussion, the Food & Wine Classic is an ideal place to learn about the latest trends defining Colorado’s food and drink scene. More than 70 celebrity chefs and beverage experts will host demonstrations as well as panel discussions. More than 40 cooking demonstrations and wine seminars from industry leaders will take place across just three days.

Of course, the Food & Wine Classic wouldn’t be much of a festival if attendees didn’t get to sample the goods. The Grand Tasting Pavilion at Wagner Park is the major highlight of the event, where more than 150 exhibitors will offer food, wine, beer, and more. There will be five consumer Grand Tastings and three Private Trade Tastings during the weekend. Visitors can walk through the pavilion and enjoy mouth-watering samples of culinary delights from around the world created by some of the best local and international chefs and brands in the food and wine industries.

Tickets to the Food & Wine Classic start at $1,950 for a Consumer Pass. A Consumer Pass provides access to the Grand Tasting Pavilion and the ability to register for cooking demonstrations and wine seminars. All the passes for this year are sold out, but a waitlist is available for interested parties.
