Spring and summer in Grand Junction, Colorado, mean the events calendar blooms right alongside the flowers. There are plenty of ways to get outdoors and celebrate local culture. Fruita, Colorado’s Mike the Headless Chicken Festival, which takes place in late May, honors the memory of the infamous chicken that survived 18 months after his head was chopped off. The Palisade Peach Festival, which takes place every August, celebrates the sweet side of local farming with a peach-eating contest, live music and lots more. For music lovers, be sure to check out Grand Junction’s annual Country Jam, a four-day festival featuring some big-name headliners, and the Downtown Art and Music Festival. There are plenty of other outdoor music events around Grand Junction, too, including summer music series hosted by the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens and several local wineries. If you’re visiting in the fall, be sure to keep an eye out for the Grand Valley Art and Craft Fairs as well as Palisade’s Feast in the Streets.
