Each year Mesa County Road and Bridge, Traffic, Hazardous Waste, and the Sheriff's Office, as part of the Mesa County Safety Council, participate in the Mesa County Safety Fair held at Mesa Mall in Grand Junction, Colorado. The Safety Fairs are typically held for two consecutive days in the last two weeks of February through first two weeks of March on an annual basis. The timing of fair dates varies year to year to accommodate attendee, participant, and Mall schedules.
