2022 is going to be a year for the history books! We are excited to announce our full event lineup and all your favorite events are coming back for the first time since 2019!

Now’s the time to get back into biking shape! This year marks a return of a fan favorite downtown event, the Grand Junction Mountain Bike and Downtown Music Fest, May 20-22!

Registration is open for the mountain bike race, now organized by the Grand Junction Sports Commission. Limited space is available so visit https://www.bikereg.com/grand-junction-mtb-music-festival and register today. If you need more incentive to sign up, $30,000 is up for grabs for the pro field – $15k for Men and Women each!

Downtown Grand Junction is also excited to bring back the Downtown Music Fest to compliment the race. Main Street will transform into a giant block party over the weekend with music, beer gardens, outdoor vendors, and of course the downtown crit races! The music festival lineup will be announced soon, stay tuned for details!

We are also pleased to announce a full slate of programming is planned for 2022! Downtown favorites like the Market on Main, the Car Show, Tree Lighting, and Parade of Lights are all scheduled for 2022.

Headed your way first is Restaurant Week. Pick up a Restaurant Week passport and dine downtown between April 1 – 10 for a chance to win restaurant gift certificates and Downtown Grand Junction gift cards! Restaurant Week takes on special significance again this year as it is critical to support independently owned, locally owned restaurants, recovering from the pandemic.
