About Slow Food Nations
Slow Food Nations is a national Slow Food event that will gather leaders and eaters, farmers and chefs, educators and families for a weekend of tastings, tours and talks from July 14-16, 2017. For three days, Denver, CO will become the center of the North American food universe. Innovation meets tradition during exciting culinary workshops, seminars, dinners, tours, informal eating and drinking, and a Taste marketplace.
The event will feature producers, organizations and prominent food figures from across North America, giving attendees a taste of the Slow Food movement as it occurs in different regions. Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate as delegates, where they will arrive early to participate in a day of discussions, panels and educational programming alongside like minded Slow Food advocates and receive additional benefits throughout the weekend. The general public will have free access to tastings and installations throughout Slow Food Nations, as they experience Denver at historic locations like Denver Union Station and Larimer Square. Slow Food Nations will bring people together to rally around the Slow Food mission of good, clean and fair food for all.

About the Slow Food Movement
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.
Since its beginnings, Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people in over 160 countries, working to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food. There are over 150 chapters in the USA.
Slow Food believes food is tied to many other aspects of life, including culture, politics, agriculture and the environment. Through our food choices we can collectively influence how food is cultivated, produced and distributed, and as a result bring about great change
The Kitchen Cabinet is a group of leaders who advise the Slow Food USA staff on overall direction, thematic areas, and presenter involvement for Slow Food Nations. They bring diverse backgrounds and skills to our team and help us curate the festival.
Additional Cabinet Members: Ian McNeel, Kade Gianinetti, Radhika Mahanty, Sylvia Tawse.
