The Big Eat Returns Just in Time for Summer Celebrations

Calling all foodies — this one is for you. The Big Eat, brought to you by EatDenver, is finally back to ring in the summer months after a three-year pause. Located within the open-air Galleria at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, this event is truly a paradise for all sun and food-loving Denverites.

“The purpose of this event is to showcase and celebrate how incredible our local dining scene is and help support the independent bar and restaurant community,” said Kate Lazor, EatDenver’s executive director.

The Big Eat features over 60 of our favorite Denver restaurants and bars. Spend your night strolling around the gorgeous venue while tasting delicious small bites from a countless number of sites. Drink options include cocktails, wine, kombucha, tea, cider and beer from the best mixologists in Denver.

“Each restaurant and bar will have its own table to stop by. You’ll get a Big Eat 2022 glass and an event guide that will take you through the restaurants and bars organized by neighborhood,” Lazor said. All food and drinks are included within the ticket price but come early and hungry — tastes are first come, first serve.

“Expect summery, high-quality bites from a wide range of restaurants, warm hospitality, live music, cocktails galore and fun discoveries along the way,” Lazor added.
