Larimer Square

Family Pavilion

Hey kids! Enter the Family Pavilion at Slow Food Nations and get your hands in the dirt. Learn how to grow, cook and enjoy Slow Food — real, delicious, flavorful food.

We want kids to know how to make good food choices. How do we do that? By giving them tangible skills and lots of confidence. The seeds we plant now will make a big impact on food and farming in the future. So come on over and have some fun!
