Last call for summer in Steamboat…

Introducing Steamboat’s first annual Food & Wine Festival! This event brings together both local and visiting chefs to create a culinary experience expertly paired with various wine selections. In true Steamboat fashion, this event also gives back to the community by supporting MainStreet Steamboat whose goal is to preserve, promote and enhance downtown Steamboat. This event also supports The Colorado Mountain College Foundations Culinary Program, which sends students to Italy for an educational culinary experience.
