The Downtown Business Association's signature autumn event, FORToberfest, is a Fort Collins-style Oktoberfest street festival. It is a celebration of our vibrant music scene, the local brewing industry and the importance of sustainability to our City (“bands, beers & bikes”). There will be art and bike vendors, delicious food offerings and live music throughout the day. Attendees will also have the opportunity to customize their own Taster Trays from 12+ Fort Collins breweries.
