October 1-October 4, 2020
If you had to pick the best thing to do in Steamboat this fall, the 2nd annual Steamboat Food & Wine Festival would be our top choice. From the chef dinners to the Grand Tasting, we’re getting hungry just thinking about it.
Food & Wine magazine’s 2019 best new chef, Caroline Glover, will be collaborating with many other renowned talents such as 2018 James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef: Southwest winner, Alex Seidel and one of Bon Appetit’s favorite restauranteurs, Kelly Whitaker among many other notable national and local chefs and master sommeliers. The grand tasting tent is over by the gondola with perfect pairing events such as film screenings, sommelier talks, and mixology demos sprinkled throughout town. There are even a few multi-course dinners planned at some of the area’s most scenic and sprawling ranches. The most current event schedule is here.
Moving Mountains pro tip:
Last year, this culinary celebration was the most coveted ticket in town. With capacity reduced due to social distance precautions in 2020, it’s even more important to not delay and buy your ticket right away. As an official lodging sponsor, you can clink glasses (air clinks, of course!) with Moving Mountains at Sunday’s Espresso & Prosecco Brunch. À Votre Santé!
What else is there to do in Steamboat in the fall?
The list is endless, and we haven’t even gotten to the fall foliage. Trust us, you can enjoy Steamboat’s explosion of yellow from the back of your mountain, road or gravel bike, from a serene hike, or from behind the car window on one of our many quiet country roads. You can stroll along the Yampa river with your pumpkin-spiced latte, take a horseback ride through the backcountry, book your own custom craft brewery tour or fly fish amongst the aspen. No matter where you are, you’ll be awash in “Colorful Colorado”.
Don’t delay, if you’ve never experienced Steamboat in the fall, it’s time to turn over a new leaf and plan your fall getaway, today.

COVID UPDATE FOR STEAMBOAT FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL
From the Steamboat Food & Wine Festival organizers: We are hard at work ensuring we are creating the absolute safest environment possible. We will be decreasing the size of all events to allow for comfortable distances at dinners, the Grand Tasting, seminars, and others. We realize this may not be the year to cozy up and meet someone new at dinner, so please know we are taking crowd size into account. We also have a very flexible cancellation policy if you feel uncomfortable joining as the date approaches.
We are closely following guidelines from CDC, the International Festivals and Events Association, our state and local health department to ensure we are operating in a safe environment for our vendors, our patrons and our team. There is no better time to support our chefs and small vineyards that have been hit so hard by this and that’s exactly what we’ll do across the weekend. We hope you’ll join us.
