Grand Junction BeaconFest

BeaconFest—the biggest boomer and senior party of the year

Free admission, live music, savory food, information and more!

The BEACON Senior Newspaper is having a party and you’re invited. The 17th annual BeaconFest Boomer & Senior Fair will be from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Thursday, April 20 at Two Rivers Convention Center, 159 Main St. in Grand Junction.

BeaconFest, the area’s largest party for boomers and seniors, is free to attend. This year’s show features an exciting lineup of entertainment, free food, lively seminars and informational booths from over 80 local vendors displaying their senior-related products and services.

“BeaconFest is a one-of-a-kind event for seniors in the Grand Valley to get together, learn and be entertained,” BEACON Publisher Kevin VanGundy said. “It’s also a fun way for the BEACON to celebrate our readers and our community.”

Thousands of dollars worth of door prizes will be given away every half hour. Enjoy high-energy music throughout the day from local favorites, such as the King ‘n’ Trio, Peggy Malone and Danny Agajanian & The Hallelujah Band, as well as the easy-listening melodies of Javier de los Santos’ classical guitar.

Don’t miss the highly anticipated Volunteer of the Year ceremony at 12:50 p.m., where the BEACON honors several outstanding community volunteers and reveals the reader-selected Volunteer of the Year.
