Special Events Task Force

Welcome to Grand Junction's Special Events Task Force page.
  • Are you an event planner looking for the right contacts in Mesa County regarding your event?
  • Are you looking to plan an event and not sure which date to choose?
  • Are you looking for direction or information on permits, traffic control, road closures, food vendors or emergency services?
  • Are you a local professional who interacts with local event organizers?
  • You're in the right place!

The Special Events Task Force was formed to create a place for open discussion and direction regarding special events within Mesa County, Colorado. This includes the communities of Grand Junction, Fruita, Palisade, Glade Park, Whitewater, Loma, Mack, Mesa and more. This group is currently coordinated with the assistance of Visit Grand Junction, a department of the City of Grand Junction. If you know someone who may benefit from this group, please feel free to invite them to our next meeting.
