The festival season has begun in Palisade and will continue throughout the summer and into the fall, with the next scheduled festival, Palisade Brews and Cruise, on May 5. This will be the fourth year for the beer festival, which will be at the Veteran’s Memorial Park.

In addition to the festival in the park, where attendees can sample more than 100 different beers, there will be a brewmaster’s dinner on Friday, May 4 at the new 13 Brix Cider Bistro in downtown Palisade.

The Grand Valley Marathon will also be on May 5, with a 5K and a 10K runs starting and ending in Palisade. Part of the proceeds from the run will benefit the Fruit and Wine Byway, which will replace signs for the popular driving and biking route.
