Aspen ideas Festival is a one-day festival celebrating the best ideas in the world, featuring food and beverages from around the world.
Festival director Ben Johnson said the festival had been created with the idea of a “greatest foodie festival” in mind.
“It is an incredible opportunity to share ideas with other festival-goers,” he said.
“We’ve seen the passion and the enthusiasm that this festival has generated over the years, so we’re excited to bring it to the festival.”
The festival will be held at the Aspen Resort and Spa in Aspen, Colorado.
The festival opens with a dinner and cocktail menu from local chefs and will feature live entertainment.
It will run for two days from Thursday 1 August to Sunday 6 August.
“Aspen Ideas Fest is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the Aspens vision for this year’s festival,” Ms Kastner said.
Ms Kestner said the theme of Aspen is food, with a focus on family, nature and culture.
“There’s an emphasis on local and local farmers,” she said.
Festival attendees can expect food from local farms and food trucks, live entertainment and interactive activities.
The theme of the festival will change each day, with the first day featuring traditional asparagus and carrots, and the second day featuring beetroot soup, cornbread and potato salad.
The food will be served on the festival grounds and in restaurants.
“The food is just going to be amazing and we’re going to have so much fun with it,” Ms Keetner said, adding that there would be live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
“I’m looking forward to the food and the food is going to do so much more for you than the food will do for you.”
Festival guests can also expect to be able to purchase food for a limited time during the festival.
“Food is going be one of the big things at Aspen,” Ms Johnson said.
The company has also created a social media account for the festival, inviting festival-going festival-goer to follow the festival on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
“This is really an opportunity for festival-holders to connect with each other and socialise,” Ms Kennedy said.
