Fruita Fall Fest 2019
September 27-29

The end of September marks the time for one of the most successful, annual events in the Grand Valley, The Fruita Fall Festival.  Part market, part carnival, and part concert, Aspen Street is transformed into the happiest place in Colorado on September 27-29. Rivaled only by new traditions in Downtown Grand Junction, the Fruita Fall Fest sets the high water mark for bringing a community and its neighbors together.

This year’s music is again split between two stages.  The first is by the Circle Park that serves as roundabout on Aspen Street.  On Friday night the stage will host the local legends of The Williams Brothers Band.  The group released a limited EP of their new music that is slated for a larger album release soon.  Part jam band, part outlaw country, the Williams Brothers have been a fixture of the Grand Valley music scene for nearly 20 years.

Saturday’s Circle Park stage features country and bluegrass with local favorites Stray Grass taking the stage at 4:45.  They are followed by Jenny Tolman, a singer songwriter who grew up in Nashville. Her song “High Class White Trash” has gained a lot of attention.  Craig Wayne Boyd is headlining the event. After winning season 7 of The Voice, the country singer went on to release Top Shelf in 2017.

The Civic Center stage opens on Saturday, September 28 at 12:30 with Tanner Smolinski, 2018 winner of Voice of the San Juans.  Wave 11 follows at 1:30, bringing infectious energy and grooves that have been gaining them fans from Colorado to California and back.  The Morgan Crouse band takes the stage at 3:15 with her impressive vocals on display. At 5:00 the Grand Valley Beard Rally returns for the third year to show off the best whiskers on the Western Slope.  The stage goes back to music at 6:00 with Wisebird from Austin, TX. Headlining the Civic Center Stage is Stonefed with their popular mix of jammy blues.

Sunday again features a football watch party in Civic Center Park, while Circle Park hosts the Victory Life Worship Team at 10:30, Greener Grass at 12:15, and That Damn Sasquatch at 1:30.  With some of the best local acts and break out national country artists, Fruita Fall Fest 2019 should be a memorable year. Don’t miss the Grand Valley’s best free party starting on Friday, September 28 and going through the weekend.
