A Labor Day Weekend Fit for Foodies

The 14th Annual Gourmet on Gore is serving world-class eats from Vail and beyond

Summers in Vail Valley could give the winter ski season a run for its money with warming golden sunshine, flower-covered mountaintops and plein-air patio dining.

Vail’s Gourmet on Gore invites wanderlusters to celebrate this atmosphere at its annual food tasting experience over Labor Day Weekend. 

Here are our top picks on what to do (and taste) on the Gore for the three-day fest.

An urban spin on the typically outdoor-centric fest, this newest addition is providing a bounty of food trucks ready to serve within Vail Village. Expect plenty of boozy drinks, live music and tasty eats from sushi to barbecue, all in the town’s cultural epicenter. 

Gourmet Let’s Go! Presented by Audi: Trail to Table Hike
