Whiskey + Doughnut Throwdown Festival Returns To Colorado

Colorado loves our whiskey, and doughnuts are man's best friend, right? What if we put those two things together into one awesome event? It's happening this summer. I'll admit, I've been to many interesting festivals over the years. When you do what I do, you get invited to or have to work some really crazy events. This particular festival has me excited though. I mean, who doesn't love doughnuts? And whiskey is absolutely my adult beverage of choice. Apparently, the two things pair extremely well as this event is now in its tenth year.

What was originally started as a joke a decade ago, ended up catching fire and becoming an event that people circle on their calendars each and every year. Literally, thousands of people attend and get their whiskey and doughnut fix. According to the event's website, the event happens each year between National Whiskey Day and National Doughnut Day, during Denver's Doughnut Week. When is this year's event?
