Be honest with us – is there any season out there that’s better than fall? You simply can’t beat when the leaves start to change colors, the air gets a little crispier, and the sights of t-shirts and shorts begin to transition into hoodies and jeans. It’s one of our favorite three-month spans of every year, and coming up next month there will be plenty of opportunities to head out with your friends and enjoy what our area offers. Join Carville’s Auto Mart at some of the coolest Fall Festivals for September 2018 in Grand Junction CO; we’re sure you’ll have a great time!  


Pork and Hops Challenge (September 7-8) 

The culture of the Western United States is brought together by two things – great live music and even better food. That’s what Las Colonias Park will be providing with their Pork and Hops Challenge, featuring amazing barbecue, awesome live acts and of course, plenty of drinks to wash it all down!  

Mountain Winefest (September 13-16) 

For the last 26 years, Colorado Winefest has been the largest celebration of its kind in the entire state, and year 27 promises to be no different. Taking place in Palisade, this festival will bring food and wine pairings, live music, grape stomping, seminars, and camaraderie with all others who attend!

Downtown Car Show (September 22) 

This hit close to our hearts; on September 22, downtown Grand Junction will come alive with the sounds and sights of muscle cars, antiques, and motorcycles, all vying for the title of the best that the city has to offer. There are plenty of other awards up for grabs (including a new electric vehicle segment), so be sure to join in the fun! 

Fruita Fall Festival (September 21-23)  

Part music festival and part variety show, the Fruita Fall Festival has an unrivaled claim to the biggest yearly event on the Western Slope.
