Revolution Artisan Pops Fruit Collective popsicles fort collins

Your nearly-expired fruit can help others! The First Annual Fruit Collective

Hate it when fruit goes bad? Have a surplus of produce at your house? Just want to support a great cause? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we have the event for you!

Revolution Artisan Pops 1st Annual Fruit Collective popsicles fort collins

 

On July 22nd, 2017 we are hosting the first annual “Fruit Collective” benefiting the Food Bank for Larimer County. Members of the community can bring excess fruit from their gardens and farms so that we can produce fun pop flavors, and preserve that fruit for an extra six months, as too much fruit is lost each year due to spoilage. With this event we hope to bring awareness to the farming community who can use us as an outlet for excess fruit while working to raise funds and make great food! All ice pops made from donated fruit will be donated directly to the food bank! Live music will begin at 11:30 am with Cody Jeffryes! We will also have raffles and other FUNdraising activities to raise money for the FBLC, including a silent auction featuring fantastic items from other local businesses such as Blue Harvest Apparel, Mary’s Mountain Cookies, The Cupboard, and Curiosities.

Stay tuned for updates on live music + food and drink tastings! We’ll be set up in the parking lot directly in front of Revolution Market in Old Town, and plenty of parking is available across the street at the First Bank Lot. We hope to see you there with lots of fruit!

Fort Collins Brewers Olympics beer cup

Brewer’s Olympics- yay beer!

Last weekend, we served pops during the Fort Collins Beer Week Brewers Olympics! It was so much fun to watch the different breweries compete in the various events, which ranged from tug of war to a stylish entrance competition.

The obstacle course was a lot of fun to watch (you can see our tent in the background):

We had a blast serving up tasty pops, watching the competition, and of course, drinking some beer. We even got to take home some of these cool cups!

Fiesta! Chef Challenge for Children

This Saturday, we’re super excited to be hosting Sunchoke Fine Dining at the second annual Chef Challenge for Children, a fundraiser benefiting La Familia Center in Fort Collins!

Revolution Artisan Pops La Familia Fiesta Chef Challenge for Children

If you’ve never head of the event before, it’s pretty cool: Chefs will create unique dishes that people sample as they travel through Old Town, Fort Collins. People vote on the dishes they like best, and later, the winning chefs are announced at an awesome party with live music, auctions, and dancing! Best part is that the event is to benefit the La Familia Center, which is a multicultural, bilingual early childhood center dedicating to helping all families.

So if you’re looking for something to do this Saturday, swing by our store and try Sunchoke dining’s dish along with your favorite pop!
