Anthem GO Outside Festival

Date: October 20, 2019

Time: 10:00 am - 11:59 pm

Location: Rivers Edge Park - South

** Update for 2019 ** – GO Fest will take place just across the river in Rivers Edge Park South.

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. GO Fest is a partnership between the nonprofit Roanoke Outside Foundation and Roanoke Parks and Recreation.

Oh, and it’s FREE! Thanks to our many sponsors including Anthem, Keen, Hydro Flask, ENO, River Rock Climbing, Walkabout Outfitter, Haley Toyota, Carter Machinery, Yakima,Roanoke Outside, Roanoke Parks & Recreation, Orivs, and Sawyer Products to name a few.

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.


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.
