What is the Special Events Task Force?

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. Contact for event communications: [email protected]
