A RIVER CELEBRATION

Colorado Riverfest is an annual community festival to celebrate one of our most powerful and majestic friends, the Colorado River. This mighty river is the lifeblood of our community and state and the 40 million people downstream that rely on it. It is also a world-class destination for recreation, enjoying wildlife, and even just cooling down on a July afternoon. Your participation in the event directly supports the river through your donation to the Round Up for the Riverfront program.

As the first year of the event, we are starting small, but like a trickle turns into a river, our efforts are focused on growing the event to offer all kinds of river activities, multiple music venues, and multiple days of fun in and on the rivers of the Grand Valley of western Colorado in the years to come.

The inagural Colorado Riverfest will take place at the Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park in Grand Junction, CO with river related activities throughout the Las Colonias and Watson Island areas and headlined by Grammy Nominated Reggae Music Artists, Common Kings. We will also feature music from AnuheaPassafire, Pacific Dub, NicenessWave 11, and a special reunion performance from the Pineapple Crackers! This years festival will be held on Saturday, July 21, 2018 (gates open at 11:00am). Tickets can be purchased online at MonumentalTix.com or by calling 800-626-TIXS
