It’s crazy to think a year has passed, Fruita Fourth Friday organizer and Rye Gallery owner Kyle Harvey said — “A year seems like a long time in some ways.”

That’s why he’s excited to celebrate one complete cycle of Fruita Fourth Fridays on Friday, Jan. 24 — an evening of artistic celebration downtown. These events happen every fourth Friday of the month, hence the name.

“It’s just been really cool to see something grassroots start to take shape,” Harvey explained, “and see people take an interest in coming out on a monthly basis to support local art, music and poetry, drink beer, and have a good time.”

This Friday is no different — there are lots of participating businesses, and everyone is encouraged to “dress up like it’s Fruita Prom,” a news release said.

Plus, Jim Moran will play classic country and rock songs at the Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen Ave.

“Fruita Fourth Friday continues to bring the community together, and it seems to be particularly true during the one-year anniversary,” Cavalcade operations manager Jeannine Purser said. “The Fruita Chamber, Fruita Arts and Culture Board, and The Rose Hue gallery have all worked together to put a quilt show together for this month’s event.”

According to Purser, there will also be “a fashion show and ale release,” put on by the Copper Club Brewery and The Vintage Common.

“When the streets of Fruita are filled with people enjoying what the town has to offer, it is always exciting,” she said.
