The Downtown Business Association's newest signature event, FORToberfest, is a Fort Collins-style Oktoberfest street celebration with a twist: a celebration of outdoor patios, our vibrant music scene, the local brewing industry and the importance of sustainability to our City (“bikes, beers & bands”). Festival go-ers can enjoy over 12+ Fort Collins breweries on site and create their own Taster Trays. These trays are fully customizable, so try four new beers or enjoy some classics-it's up to you! Relish in live music, art/bike vendors, and delicious food throughout the day.
