Cedaredge is the gateway to the matchless Grand Mesa, the flat-topped mesa the Ute Indians called "Thunder Mountain." Join us for Applefest each fall, celebrating world-renown products from nearby orchards, which are among the world's highest.
The Grand Mesa National Scenic and Historic Byway passes through Cedaredge on its way to the top of Grand Mesa where you will find over 300 lakes, breathtaking views of 5 mountain ranges and 400 miles of recreation trails. Any time of year the Grand Mesa offers visitors plenty of outdoor recreation.
Stop in Cedaredge to visit Pioneer Town and Museum. Three distinctive stacked wooden silos watch over this re-created pioneer town with numerous artifacts. Be sure to stop in the Adobe house for a glimpse of the Sutherland spear point and arrowhead collection. It's truly an amazing collection.
Throughout the summer the town park of Cedaredge comes alive with outdoor concerts and entertainment. Pop into the Cedaredge Floral and Pharmacy and treat yourself to a refreshing drink from the original soda fountain.


Catch the spirit of the Old West in the town nestled in the heart of cattle country, between the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnsion and the alpine peaks of the West Elk Wilderness. Explore miles of trails, play at Crawford Reservoir State Park, shop in unique stores and studios and enjoy old-fashioned friendliness!


Surrounded by sheltering walls of snow-capped mountains and fed by the confluence of two rivers, this lush valley serves as what is affectionately called the "banana belt" of Colorado. An alpine hike, desert bike ride or family rafting all begins in Delta. Discover dinosaurs, take the tour of murals or historic buildings and enjoy a round of golf all year long.


Rodeo, prize-winning 4-H animals, blue ribbon pies and farm fresh vegetables help celebrate the agricultural heritage of this community. Hotchkiss is host to the annual Delta County Fair and home of quaint antique stores, bountiful orchards and unique shops.

Hotchkiss is the home of the Hotchkiss Sheep Camp Stock Dog Trials. Join us every year during Mother's Day weekend for the dog trials and a number of great events that include wine, chocolate and eats.

Step in to the Creamery Arts Center on the main street and check out the great selection of high end art, even the bathrooms are works of art!


Up in the North Fork Valley of Delta County, cattle ranches, orchards and organic gardens dot the countryside. Tour a winery or visit an artist's foundry. Celebrate the 4th of July at Paonia Cherry Days. Historic lodges and inns provide a unique lodging experience.

Paonia is home of KVNF public radio, the Blue Sage Gallery, the Paradise Theatre and a thriving artists Mecca. From home grown tunes, drum performances, 4-piece string quartets, roots and a variety of vocalists, you think you have landed in music heaven.

Then, taste the greatness prepared at the Flying Fork Bakery Cafe, the New Casa, Aspen Deli or the temptations at the Fresh and Wyld Farmhouse. Pair these dining experiences with one of the local wines, six wineries can be found in the vicinity, and you will think that you might be in Napa Valley.
