Summer is coming to a close, which means it’s prime time to eat some peaches! The Fort Collins Peach Festival is this Saturday, Aug. 22, at Hughes Stadium. The festival is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free and parking is only $5, but I recommend biking.
The peach festival includes tons of peach flavored eats and peach beer from lots of local breweries. Local music will also be provided by Winchester Holiday, American Blackout, and The Commoners. Check out the full schedule.
