The inaugural Tastes & Sounds of Fort Collins is an outdoor festival held at the Civic Center park 11 am-5 pm on July 12. Several Colorado wineries will be there to taste and sell their wines, and local restaurants and gourmet mobile kitchens will offer both free samples and larger portions for sale.
