Explore Park

Explore Park is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, America’s Favorite Drive, about 15 minutes away from Elmwood Park in Downtown Roanoke (where GO Fest is held). It’s the perfect place for a family camping adventure with offerings on land, water, and in the air!


For those spending part of their GO Fest weekend at Explore Park, we’re offering a free, courtesy shuttle to transport attendees back and forth between Elmwood Park and Explore Park. The shuttle will run hourly from GO Fest to Explore Park from Friday to Sunday. A full shuttle schedule will be released soon.
