Fruita is the city where you get out and play!
Fruita, Colorado, is one of the most active, progressive and diverse communities in Western Colorado. Still, they strive to maintain their close ties to a rich historical past and the strong bonds of their neighborhoods.
Fruita’s history boasts steady growth for over a century, with descendants of many of the original pioneers still living in the area. Today, Fruita still appreciates its western heritage and its scenic setting at the foot of the Colorado National Monument.
Every year, Fruita plays host to a number of truly unique festivals in Colorado! We celebrate fun with a variety of classic and unique events from the Hometown Christmas and the Fruita Fall Fest, to the red rock classic Fat Tire Festival, and the unusual, bizarre and very humorous “Mike the Headless Chicken” Festival.
