Events We Love: Slow Food Nations
In the past decade, the Slow Food philosophy has been permeating been into other industries of late, like perfume and flowers. But sometimes, there’s nothing like the original.
Taking place between July 14th and 16th in Denver, CO is the Slow Food Nations, which is billed as a having the “energy of a street food festival, the rigor of an academic conference, and the inspiration of a cultural exchange.” Hosted by Slow Food USA, Slow Food Nations offers workshops, tastings, tours, and talks. Offerings range from “Bake and Destroy” (a primer on puff pastries and other buttery doughs) to a marketplace with almost a hundred vendors (offering free samples!), from a burgers and bluegrass block party to a discussion of race in farming— in short, a veritable feast for body and mind.
The festival is free to the public, although certain events are ticketed, so be sure to check out their events page to see what interests you.
