Our award-winning monthly magazine

The BEACON is Western Colorado’s leading monthly magazine with inspiring stories, local news, entertaining columns and relevant content for older adults in Mesa, Delta and Montrose counties. Since 1986, the BEACON has consistently been a top award winner at the annual journalism competition of the North American Mature Publishers Association (NAMPA).

Thanks to our advertisers, our monthly magazine is distributed free of charge to more than 300 locations throughout Mesa, Montrose and Delta counties.  BEACON Senior News captures the attention of seniors and baby boomers more than any other publication in the region.


Celebrate age at the area's largest boomer and senior fair

• Grand Junction’s BeaconFest takes place in April 
• Montrose-Delta’s BeaconFest takes place in September

Join us twice a year in Grand Junction and Montrose, Colorado, for this celebration of age! BeaconFest is a vibrant mature lifestyle expo with booths by local and national vendors, live music, food samples, informative seminars and prize giveaways—all free for seniors! 

BeaconFest is also our way of celebrating the BEACON’s readers and the businesses devoted to helping them.

The BEACON Guide

Your trusted guide to aging well

• Mesa County Edition
• Montrose-Delta Edition

The BEACON Guide
 is our annual resource directory featuring educational articles and an extensive list of hard-to-find contact information for local programs and businesses in an easy-to-read publication that’s referred to all year long.

No matter where you're at on your aging journey, you'll find information for local clubs and volunteer opportunities, and resources to help with retirement planning, home services, medical services, caregiving, senior housing and end of life options. 

Every year, we call to verify each and every phone number to ensure our readers have accurate and up-to-date information. In December, we publish two annual editions: one for Mesa County and another for Montrose & Delta counties.
