It’s no secret that Roanoke is a hub for adventure, making it a favorite for travel, recreation, and living, and the perfect place to host the annual outdoor festival, The Anthem Roanoke GO Outside Festival (GO Fest). Though for many this year did not go exactly as planned, communities were driven to get creative in the ways they come together.
The Roanoke Outside Foundation and Roanoke Parks and Recreation have not only ensured that GO Fest will be happening this weekend (Oct 16-18) by closely adhering to all CDC guidelines, they also made sure that it would give back to it’s community with a new program, Project Outside, all while doing what they do best—getting people to go outside and play.
