Juicy, sweet, summer perfection. This is a fruit, that I agree, deserves it's own festival. The annual Fort Collins Peach Festival is coming up this Saturday, August 19th with a new location.

You now get to enjoy the peach margaritas, peach pie, live music and more at Civic Center Park and Washington Park (same as the Taste of Fort Collins) near Old Town. The event features tons of peachy treats, a pie eating contest, peachy yoga, a huge kids area, lots of live music and great vendors and artisans. The festival goes from 10am to 6pm, but before that, you can enjoy a peachy 5k and a peachy pancake breakfast. This is a really fun event, centered around one of nature's most precious fruits.

The Rotary Clubs of Fort Collins present the seventh annual Fort Collins Peach Festival on Saturday, August 19th, 2017. Tickets are $5 for those 16 and older, free for 15 and younger.
