By Alexander Kirk, 9 News | Downtown Denver Partnership announced it will not hold its annual Taste of Colorado this weekend. The Taste of Colorado festival has traditionally been held over the Labor Day holiday weekend at Civic Center in downtown Denver to celebrate the food, artisans, musicians and vendors of the Centennial State.

This year, Taste of Colorado was incorporated into ¡Viva! Streets, a new downtown Denver experience. The inaugural series this summer closed 3.5 miles of Denver streets to cars on four days.

The Denver Downtown Partnership said the goal of ¡Viva! Streets was to invite city-goers to “walk, bike, roll, jog, scoot, or dance down activated streets in the heart of our city and connect with community through exercise, entertainment, and food.”

A big draw of the free festival in past years was the entertainment lineup. Past performers included Sugar Ray, Dwight Yoakam, KC and the Sunshine Band, Smash Mouth, Kool & the Gang, Scott Stapp, Grand Funk Railroad, and LeAnn Rimes.
