The burgeoning wine industry of Colorado will showcase its best wines at the first Boulder Food & Wine Festival on Aug. 12, from noon to 5 p.m. at Central park in Downtown Boulder. Twenty top Boulder-area restaurants and 25 Colorado wineries will participate in the event, with proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.

“We’re amazed and delighted by the response from the restaurants and wineries,” said John Garlich of BookCliff Vineyards, one of the festival’s organizers. “Frankly, it’s more than we’d hoped for.”

Tickets to the event cost $35 if purchased in advance at the event’s website, or $40 if purchased at the door. Festival-goers will be able to taste gourmet food offered by Boulder’s top restaurants, including The Flagstaff House, The Kitchen, and Q’s Restaurant. Participating wineries will offer samples of more than 100 wines and meads.

At the festival, visitors can visit the Classes and Demo tent, from 1 to 4 p.m., where instructors from the Culinary School of the Rockies will demonstrate the latest cooking tips and tricks. Also at the tent, Doug Caskey, executive director of the Colorado Wine Board, will lead classes on subjects such as food and wine pairing.
