The BEACON Senior Newspaper is having a party and you’re invited. The 14th annual BeaconFest Boomer & Senior Fair will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Thursday, April 17 at Two Rivers Convention Center, 159 Main St. in Grand Junction.
This year’s BeaconFest features an exciting lineup of entertainment, free food, lively seminars and informational booths from over 90 senior related businesses. BeaconFest is free to attend.
“Susan Capps, the BEACON’s founding publisher, started BeaconFest as a way to meet the paper’s readers and to thank them for their loyal support,” BEACON Publisher Kevin VanGundy said. “Since then, BeaconFest has become quite a shindig and keeps getting bigger and better every year. I think it’s the biggest boomer and senior fair in the state now.”
Thousands of dollars worth of door prizes will be given away. This year’s BeaconFest features a variety of entertainment. The King’n Trio will return to the main stage and have you singing along to local favorites. New this year, bone tree will move you to your feet as they introduce a new and exciting style of American music.
BeaconFest also recognizes the volunteer efforts of many local boomers and seniors. A ceremony will be held at 12:50 p.m. honoring nominees and announcing the winner for this year’s Volunteer of the Year award.
