An increased music budget used to draw national acts James McMurtry, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Shakey Graves to Grand Junction for free shows was one reason event organizers said it made sense to combine the Grand Junction Off-Road and Art + Music Festival into one weekend.
The new Grand Junction Off-Road and Art + Music Festival is May 29–31 with a special opening night show with McMurtry on May 28 at Edgewater Brewery, 905 Struthers Ave.
“It’s going to be awesome,” said Robin Brown, special events coordinator with Downtown Grand Junction Business Improvement District and Downtown Development Authority.
