The GO Outside Festival (GO Fest for short) is a giant weekend of outdoor fun.

This year, Get2KnowNoke is inviting college students to come play — bike, run, paddle, or just swing in an ENO — and represent your school to win prizes.

We’ll host a scavenger hunt on the GO Fest site, Saturday, Oct. 19 through Sunday, Oct. 20, where you can join a team from your college or university to collect points and earn prizes. (Everyone who registers is guaranteed some free swag.)

GO FEST, scheduled for Oct. 18-20 at River’s Edge in Roanoke, VA, includes more activities than you can do in three days – camping, biking, paddling, races, fishing, climbing, and more. The festival is the perfect location for testing a new bike, pair of shoes, or even a SUP.

Voted “Best Outdoor Festival” the past three years by Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine GO Fest is a great opportunity to spend the day with friends, participate in races and challenges, try out gear, sample food and drink, listen and dance to live music (or at the silent disco), and watch pro BMXers, a lumberjack show, or dock-diving dogs.

There are more than 120 workshops and clinics spread throughout the weekend. Admission and demos are free.

* Texting FEST to 66866 and confirming your email gets you information about the event and included on the Get2KnowNoke list, where we send occasional emails. We will not send promotional text messages to your mobile phone.
