BeaconFest is a celebration of all that’s boomer and senior related. Last year, a record number of people attended this festive event. This year’s senior fair will be from 9 am-3 pm Thursday, April 21 at the Two Rivers Convention Center in downtown Grand Junction.
Why attend BeaconFest?
This year’s BeaconFest features an exciting lineup of entertainment, including the ever-popular bone tree and local country star Peggy Malone. Free seminars will be offered on topics as wide-ranging as identity theft to estate planning. Well-known restaurants such as Rib City Grill, Olive Garden, Nick ‘n’ Willy’s Pizza, Mi Mexico, Taste of Heaven, and Buffalo Wild Wings will be giving away free samples of their food.
Thousands of dollars worth of valuable prizes and cash will be given away in free door prize drawings throughout the day.
Vendor booths from over 100 businesses and agencies will be set up to provide current and prospective seniors with information about products and services available to help them successfully navigate the aging process. We have home improvement folks, health and nutrition information, representatives from many of our local assisted living facilities, government officials, beauty products and services, longevity screenings, real estate professionals and even a dentist.
The main reason to attend BeaconFest is because it’s fun and it’s our way of saying thank you for reading the BEACON Senior Newspaper. Come and let us give you a happy hug or a hearty handshake. And please thank our vendors and sponsors: Hilltop, FCI Constructors, Tile Meister, KREX and Home Care of the Grand Valley.
