Shake + Brake Showdown

What is it?

New to the Denver Food + Wine Festival in 2022, the Shake + Brake Showdown is a lively cocktail competition fueled by bites from Denver’s best food trucks. Expect all-you-can-drink from 10 local bartenders, appetizers from Shake + Brake’s six food truck all-stars, and the opportunity to purchase more food from the trucks if you’re still hungry! Attendees will be able to vote on their favorite food truck and their favorite cocktail while listening to live music, playing lawn games, and more!
