New! Pre-Ordered Meals

Boulder-based deli and catering company Dish Gourmet’s entire sandwich and salad menu, as well as specialty meals specially created for Festival attendees, will be available to be ordered in advance and picked up from their convenient Pearl Street location. Dish Gourmet’s menus will change weekly but will always include a steak, chicken, and vegetarian/vegan option.

To pre-order your Dish Gourmet meals, call or email Rebecca at 720-565-5933 or rebecca@dishgourmet.com by 10am the day of your concert. Payment can be arranged by phone or completed at time of pickup. (Online ordering is not currently an option.)

Meals can be picked up from Dish Gourmet’s location at at 1918 Pearl Street, which offers ample parking in front for an easy pick up, as well as a shaded patio should you choose to eat your meal on site. Orders are to be picked up at Dish Gourmet, not at Chautauqua.
