Piggybacking off of the popular ‘Taste of Colorado’ Festival in Denver, The Taste of Keystone has become a well-known and long standing tradition in Keystone and is sure to impress any ‘foodie’. This year the event is in it’s 24th year and is taking place tomorrow, September 2nd in Keystone’s Lakeside Village.
