Chipotle is bringing the party to its hometown. The Mile High City is already in the farm-to-table groove, and this festival brings together local farmers and some of the nation's top chefs—including Colorado's own Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson (Frasca Food and Wine)—to demo and craft upscale, yet accessible eats. Visit at least four the the "experience" tents—like the avocado area, where you'll learn how to make great guac—to earn a free meal from Chipotle after the festival. Some proceeds benefit Family Farmed, a nonprofit that works to build and expand local food business. Sat 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
