120 years: 1995

The Grand Junction Senior Theatre makes its debut at the Avalon.



The arts and higher education are forerunners in the city’s development in 1995. The Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce reports that Mesa State College contributes $138 million to the local economy each year. The college receives a grant from the Colorado Council on Higher Education for $185,166 to extend their distance learning programs.

The Performing Arts Conservatory is founded by Rachel Nelson Fortner and the first Celtic Highlands Fair & Games is held.

The Grand Junction Senior Theatre makes its debut at the Avalon with a Follies show directed by Evelyn Kyle and Ginger Rice.
