Slow Food Nations is a national Slow Food event that will gather leaders and eaters, farmers and chefs, educators and families for a weekend of tastings, tours and talks, July 14 – 16, 2017.
Organizers say that over those three days, the host city, Denver, “will become the center of the North American food universe.”
Eating, drinking, and learning. The Slow Food Nations conference will include culinary workshops, seminars, dinners, tours, informal eating and drinking, and a Festival of Flavors marketplace.
The event will feature producers, organizations and prominent food figures from across North America, giving attendees a taste of the Slow Food movement as it occurs in different regions.
Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate as delegates, arriving early for a day of discussions, panels and educational programming. The general public will have free access to tastings and installations throughout Slow Food Nations, at historic downtown Denver locations in the restored Union Station and Larimer Square.
Interested in participating? We’ll be sharing more information about the Slow Food Nations conference at our upcoming Winter Soup Potluck on February 18. We’d like to get bring a good-sized group of Slow Food Des Moines folks to Denver this July.
