Fort Collins Foodie Walk
When: Friday, June 15th
Meant for the true food connoisseur. For those who have never heard of the Foodie Walk, it’s simple. It’s the time of month when select culinary shops stay open late for interactive showcases and food tastings. Best of all, it’s free and open to anyone. Featured this weekend is The Cupboard, Savory Spice, Nuance Chocolate, and more. Goes from 5 p.m. to 8.
SOJA @ The Aggie Theatre
When: Friday, June 15
The 2x Grammy nominated band Soja is coming to The Aggie this Friday. Having been around for nearly two decades, these guys have played in cities all across the globe. They’ll be supported by Iya Terra. Doors don’t open until 8 p.m, so you’ve got all day to decide! Tickets are $45
Women of Summer in Wellington
When: Saturday June 16, 5:30pm
June’s headliner is Erica Brown & Friends. Erica Brown has been singing the Blues all her life, and is Colorado’s Queen of Blues, winning the 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016 “Best Blues Singer-Female” award from the Colorado Blues Society’s Members’ Choice Competition.

Crunchy Critter Cuisine @ Global Village Museum of Arts
When: Saturday, June 16
Learn about the nutritional value of edible insects, locally and across the world. There will be two guest speakers – both local Colorado business owners. Nate Hines, co-owner of The Welsh Rabbit, and Dr. Amy Franklin, founder of Farms for Orphans. The event will run from 1-3 p.m. at the Global Village Museum of Arts. Admission is free.
Northern Colorado Metal Fest
When: Saturday/Sunday, June 16/17
Putting all of the heaviest bands from Northern Colorado into one venue across two nights. Seems like a great idea to me. Headlining the lineup are bands Prophecy and Troglodyte, among several more. The concert starts at 4 p.m. both days and ends at midnight. I’m hyped about this one personally. Get tickets here.
