Downtown Grand Junction is home to over 400 local restaurants, shops, experiential stores, and the country's oldest public art sculpture program - Art on the Corner. Main Street (and the other surrounding streets) are also filled with murals, painted traffic signal boxes and pianos, lush trees, shrubs and flowers (nearly year round!) and over ten festivals occurring on Main Street - including 13 weeks of a summer market, live music at all events, large parades, and events surrounding what our community values. Downtown Grand Junction was also just named by the State of Colorado as a 'Certified Creative District' making us one of the few communities to achieve this honor. If Downtown Grand Junction won this contest, the funds would go to continuing the improvements of Downtown to bring more art, vibrancy, and entertainment while creating a welcoming and inviting atmosphere for all to enjoy!
