Taste of Ouray, June 5th

What better way to experience the true flavor of Ouray than with the annual Taste of Ouray culinary festival? Join us on June 5th at the Ouray Community Center for an evening with tantalizing and delicious samplings of local cuisine, brews and wine, demonstrations and competitions. Local chefs and caterers are already securing their places and planning their tasting menus. Attendees exchange tasting tickets for sweet and savory samples and vote for their favorites.

Come vote for your favorite “My Favorite thing about Ouray” Cupcake War. The cupcakes will be on display during the event; voting closes at 7:30 PM, and prizes will be awarded at 7:45 PM.

Taste of Ouray is expanding the popular cooking challenge. This year’s competition will be open to eight local chefs who will choose a “mystery” ingredient provided by the Ouray Chamber Resort Association. Ouray’s own celebrity chef’s will create and present creations. Spots may still be open if you are interested in participating. Please contact Heidi Pankow at (970)325-4746

Bring your future chef’s as there will be cooking activities for children through out the event.

Admission is free, and food and beverage tasting tickets will be sold for $1 each.
