The Roanoke GO Outside Festival, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, is an annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor recreation. By combining the things outdoor enthusiasts love - camping, music, gear, races, and demos, and a beautiful outdoor setting – GO Fest is a celebration of everything outdoors.

This isn't your ordinary sit-in-your seat kind of event - you're encouraged to get involved. Walk around, touch gear, try stuff out, and above all, have fun.

WATCH IT:  Pro athlete show including bmx stunts, bike trials, slacklining, dog dock jumping, lumberjack sports, etc.

TRY IT: Take equipment out for a test spin - bikes, shoes, kayaks, SUP, fly rods, etc. Plus 175+ workshops/clinics.

RACE IT: From 5K to Half Marathon to Cyclocross lots more.

So come pitch your tent, bring your dog (on leash), listen to great local music, sample craft beer, demo a bike or SUP, pick up a new piece of gear, and a heck of lot more. Welcome to the Roanoke Outdoor Sports Festival for you and your mom!
