An annual three-day celebration of everything outdoors in Roanoke, Virginia.
At the Anthem GO Outside Festival you will find a community of conservation organizations, outfitters, clubs, and outdoor gear companies alongside outdoor-minded artisans and some of the best food vendors Roanoke has to offer.
This isn’t your ordinary sit-in-your-seat kind of festival – you’re encouraged to get involved.
Wander through downtown Roanoke for three days to try you hand at endless outdoor activities. Here, you can test drive a bike, demo a stand-up paddleboard, learn to fly cast, join a race, and sample craft beer all in one afternoon. Explore the world of outdoor sports when you watch films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival or take in a pro-athlete show. Discover a community of enthusiasts for virtually any outdoor passion and find yourself at home in the Roanoke region’s outdoors.
We will be offering special sessions on how to create your own eco-friendly re-usable tote bag! Click here to reserve your spot on the 15th or 16th.
