East Coast’s Premier Outdoor Festival at Outdoor Retailer

Organizers available to meet and help you get in front of 45,000+ active outdoor users this fall.

Get your brand in front of 45,000 active outdoor users at the October 16-18 GO Outside Festival in Roanoke, Virginia. Event staff will be meeting with existing partners at Outdoor Retailer and welcome the opportunity to meet with new brands wanting to tap into the East Coast market.

In nine years, the festival has grown from 4,500 people to 40,000 people and is anticipating more than 45,000 people in 2020.

The goal of the festival is to introduce new users to life-long outdoor recreation while also connecting outdoor enthusiasts with the brands that take them outdoors.

“The festival is free to attend,” said Pete Eshelman, director of the Roanoke Outside Foundation, which puts on the event. “We do not want cost to be a barrier to entry to the outdoor lifestyle. We want to introduce as many people as possible to different outdoor activities as well as with the companies that help people get outside.”

People are inspired by pro athletes, competitive races, camping, and music, with the biggest emphasis on equipment demos. There are more than 150 activities designed to help people try new gear, from bike and shoe demos to SUP yoga to backpack cooking classes.

Event organizers will be at Winter Outdoor Retailer and welcome the opportunity to meet with your team and discuss ways to get your brand involved with the festival. Drop an email to pete@roanoke.org to set up an appointment.
