On September 19th & 20th, join in on Fort Collins’s newest event that celebrates the closing of another beautiful Colorado summer with bikes, beer and a great music lineup.

The fun begins at 5pm this Friday in Old Town Square, where you can catch Sofie Reed, Better Than Bacon, and headliner, Young Ancients.  Saturday’s music lineup starts up at 11am and is packed full of more local acts playing an assortment of genres on two different stages.   Take in the likes of The Burroughs, Romeo Delight: A Live Tribute to Van Halen, Choice City Seven, and Soul School well in to the evening.

A Fort Collins celebration wouldn’t be complete without including the craft beer and biking worlds, two strong pieces of the surrounding community.  Breweries of all shapes and sizes coexist and flourish in this one of a kind environment, another great reason to celebrate.  Six of the local breweries will be serving up their tasty seasonals for all those of age to enjoy while listening to the musical talent and taking in the bike friendly culture.

We are also fortunate to be surrounded by nine bike manufacturers, 16 bike retailers and a biking culture like no other.  Take this opportunity to join others and ride the town, meet fellow bike enthusiasts, or just bask in the last of the warm weather while listening to some bluegrass.  And starting at 12pm Saturday catch one of the many bike stunt shows that will be taking place all afternoon.

So find your way to downtown Fort Collins this weekend for FORToberfest, as we say our farewell to the heat of summer and welcome in the changing leaves and cooler temperatures!
