Colorado Heritage & Agritourism Committee

The Colorado Heritage and Agritourism Program celebrates Colorado’s agricultural roots and rich cultural heritage. This innovative concept creates unique and authentic opportunities for visitors to step off the beaten path and engage in a myriad of culinary, heritage and agricultural offerings.

A strategic planning process for these Colorado agritourism and heritage programs was undertaken in the fall of 2012 and completed in April of 2013 (below).
