Denver is set for a music- and beer-soaked September. A new music festival will dazzle Instagram feeds, the annual Taste of Colorado festival is expected to draw in more people than ever (over half a million!) and the Great American Beer Festival should be just that: great.
With all the food and drink being served up, Denverites looking to get around the city will need to eat their proverbial traffic-peas. Road closures and heavy pedestrian traffic will squeeze weekend transportation more than usual this coming month.

Marking its 35th year, the festival is packing in its biggest lineup yet. Organizers expect over 500,000 attendees this year and are working closely with the Denver Police Department to have plenty of off duty officers on scene to ensure a safe event, said Doug Schepman a spokesman for the Denver Police Department. The festivities will converge in Civic Center Park for an abbreviated three days this year. Courtesy of The Denver Post.
