Let’s Chat!

We have an amazing crew of volunteers and staff that work year-round to make the annual Anthem GO Fest a reality. The outdoors is our passion and our staff has experienced some of the most epic adventures throughout the country and around-the-world. Now they are bringing what they’ve learned to make the Roanoke Region a better place to live, work and play.

Stay in touch (we promise we don’t email often or share info).

Volunteers, Committee Members & Community Organizations

It takes 600+ people every year to make GO Fest happen. Not to mention sponsors, municipalities, clubs, local businesses, national manufacturers and too many organizations and people to list. We are so grateful and it just goes to show that this is a community-led effort – YOU ARE GO FEST.
