The fifth annual Off Road Show at Mesa County Fairgrounds Saturday, June 1, isn’t just for Jeeps. It’s a gathering for all off-road enthusiasts, from dune buggies to motorcycles — pretty much all forms of motorized recreation. The event is set to run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be an off-road vehicles show, “a parts swap meet, and a small rock crawling event on site,” an event news release said. “Vendors bring out the newest and best parts and accessories, many offering show discounts.”

Put on by the Grand Mesa Jeep Club, event organizer Janie Bates said this group has operated in the valley for a half-century.

“Seventy-two families are members,” Bates added.

Admission to the Off Road Show is free; plus it’s free to enter your vehicle. There’s also no cost to feature items in the swap.

The Off Road Show is the final day of “Rock Junction,” three days of Jeep trail rides in the Grand Junction area, the news release said.

According to Bates, she expects between 5,000-6,000 folks at the Mesa County Fairgrounds Saturday. Funds raised at the rock crawling event will benefit families dealing with breast cancer.

Vendors — like food, 4H and BLM land management — will additionally be on-site. Raffles and drawings for hats and T-shirts will go on throughout the day.

“Booth spots are $50 if anyone wants one,” Bates said.
