Downtown Grand Junction is the place to be this weekend for live music and one of the biggest displays of art west of the Continental Divide. The 17th Annual Wells Fargo Art and Jazz Festival started Friday on Main Street.
The three–day event kicked off Friday evening and marks the start of the summer season for the downtown calendar of events.
About 10,000 people are expected to jam Main Street through Sunday evening. 11 local and national musical acts will take the main stage located at 4th and Main Street.
Several local unpaid acts will perform on a second stage just two blocks away on 6th Street. In addition, there will be a beer garden, wine tasting, and a variety of art demonstrations, including the change out of the Art on the Corner Sculptures.
Some downtown businesses are planning to stay open late for shopping, and many restaurants along Main Street are offering outdoor patio seating.
