Live Shows in Elmwood Park on the Haley Toyota Stage

The annual Anthem Go Outside Festival will be rocking out Elmwood Amphitheater at this year’s downtown event, featuring headliner Vintage Trouble on Saturday, October 16.

Vintage Trouble on the Haley Toyota Music Stage (Elmwood Park)

Vintage Trouble is a Los Angeles-based band known for their electric stage presence and acrobatic front man Ty Taylor. GO Fest continues to push the envelope, attracting bands that fall outside the norm for the region’s typically classic rock and country music genres, hoping to appeal to more diverse audiences.

Vintage Trouble, the Saturday night show in Elmwood, brings swaggering rock, soulful blues, R&B grooves, and pop ambition into a bold and brash brew. The talented quartet have logged 3,000 shows across 30 countries on tour with divinities such as The Who, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Lenny Kravitz, and Bon Jovi, to name a few. They’ve performed on Later… with Jools Holland, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Conan, The View, and The Tonight Show in addition to receiving acclaim from New York Times, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, Billboard, and Rolling Stone.

Concert tickets are $25 per person with tickets going on sale Wednesday, September 22. Tickets will be sold onsite for an additional fee. Gates open at 7pm with a regional opening act starting at 8pm. Seats are first come, first serve.

Tickets can be purchases at roanokelive.com, by phone at 844.599.LIVE or in person at the Berglund Center Box Office anytime Monday-Friday, 10am – 6pm.

Member One Lumberjack Show

The Timberworks Lumberjack Show–a collection of the most flannel wearin’, ax swingin’, log rollin’, and saw pullin’ lumberjacks (and Jills) out of Hayward, Wisconsin–will be joining us at GO Fest to run the gamut on rough, tough lumberjack skills.

You’ll see a full treatment of timber-crushing action – whole logs of pine sliced in seconds; axes hurled from distances of up to 20 feet; the best tools of the lumberjack trade, from modern tech to old time implements; and more feats of “lumbersexual” strength. Throw in some laughable narration by the frontman, not to mention some pretty entertaining antics from the lumberjacks themselves, and you’ve got a show that never disappoints.

The Lumberjack Show is brought to you by Member One Federal Credit Union. Member One is a proudly local, full-service financial institution serving southwest and central Virginia. Their passion is to provide individuals and businesses in our community with financial tools they can count on, from everyday essentials to major money milestones.

Banff Mountain Film Festival

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour has been providing outdoorsy folk from around the world with mountain culture for over 40 years. The films shown as part of the traveling world tour are inspiring, adventurous, and thought-provoking, created for like-minded audiences in cities, mountain towns (like Roanoke), and villages in over 40 countries.

This year BANFF will be a part of the annual Anthem Go Outside Festival thanks to Mast General Store, kicking off the entertainment in Elmwood Park on the Haley Toyota Stage. GO Fest will be asking for donations at the door for the Friday showing, but no ticket price is required.

Gates open at 6:30pm and films will begin at 7pm. There will be food, beer and vendors in Elmwood throughout the weekend, this includes during the films.

All proceeds from both events will go to benefit Project Outside, a community fund created to support outdoor capital improvement projects, maintain key outdoor assets, and help launch and support businesses in the outdoor sector.

Last year GO Fest, through sponsors and concert ticket sales, was able to award fourteen Project Outside grants totaling $110,000 that supported trail development, greenway maintenance, ProjectPark to improve the Villa Heights Rec Center, provided much-need equipment to trail organizations, support local outdoor businesses impacted by COVID, frisbee golf courses, and support a start-up businesses catering to mountain bike tourism.

Self-Guides Mountain Bike Rides

Virginia’s Blue Ridge is the only East Coast community with a Silver-Level Ride Center designation by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA); come see why we’re the Mountain Bike Capital of the East.

The Blue Ridge Mountains have produced the best mountain biking trails in the East Coast. Whether you are into single speed, downhill, or cross country you will be spent after a day on these trails.

The region is home to multiple trail systems — Mill Mountain Park, Explore Park, Douthat State Park, and Carvins Cove to name a few — that include multiple ride options that can give you a short half-hour ride or occupy you all day long. Add each of these areas to your bucket list, check them off one at a time, and be prepared to come back again and again.

And we’re not ashamed to say the region is home to a few stand-alone epic trails as well. These are classic Roanoke mountain bike rides and not for the faint at heart. Some are one-way rides, so consider a shuttle and plan in advance. These adventures include the Patterson Creek Trail System, Arcadia Up and Over, Dragon’s Back and Dody Ridge.

Each of the hikes listed include trail information, tips for parking, what you should look for along the way, and how tough (or easy) the hike will be.

So lace up your boots, grab a bag and hit the trail. You won’t be disappointed.

Go Quest

Our popular 2020 event created as a unique way to challenge and bring friends together, when they might not be able to physically be near one another, is back again for 2021! Teams of up to six individuals will have exactly 96-hours, October 14-17, to complete 100+ missions.

Feel the GO Fest spirit as you venture from one mission to the next. You’ll keep up with competitors on the social feed and track your progress on the GO Quest leader-board, all on the app.

Find up to 5 other people (6 including you!) to form your team. These can be your quaranteam here in town, or you can team up from afar! These missions can be completed together or separately. Pick a team captain who will create the team in the registration portal, but each of you will need to register separately and “join” the appropriate team.

The missions will range in difficulty level and point value. Examples of missions include hiking/running the Roanoke 7 Summits, participating in a GO Fest scheduled activity like a bike clinic, completing your own beer mile, trash tag, or cooking a tasty treat out of something you find in nature.

OngoingSelf-Guides Mountain Bike RidesThese are self-guided adventures…you’re on your own!

Self-Guides Mountain Bike Rides

Virginia’s Blue Ridge is the only East Coast community with a Silver-Level Ride Center designation by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA); come see why we’re the Mountain Bike Capital of the East.

The Blue Ridge Mountains have produced the best mountain biking trails in the East Coast. Whether you are into single speed, downhill, or cross country you will be spent after a day on these trails.

The region is home to multiple trail systems — Mill Mountain Park, Explore Park, Douthat State Park, and Carvins Cove to name a few — that include multiple ride options that can give you a short half-hour ride or occupy you all day long. Add each of these areas to your bucket list, check them off one at a time, and be prepared to come back again and again.

And we’re not ashamed to say the region is home to a few stand-alone epic trails as well. These are classic Roanoke mountain bike rides and not for the faint at heart. Some are one-way rides, so consider a shuttle and plan in advance. These adventures include the Patterson Creek Trail System, Arcadia Up and Over, Dragon’s Back and Dody Ridge.

Self Guided Hikes

Find a new hike GO Fest weekend!

Leave the asphalt, cars, and noise behind and lose yourself while taking a walk in the woods. From the well-known Appalachian Trail and its most photographed point, McAfee Knob, to some hidden gems such as Harkening Hill or Hoop Hole Trail, there’s a hike that suits every type of adventurer.

Each of the hikes listed include trail information, tips for parking, what you should look for along the way, and how tough (or easy) the hike will be.

So lace up your boots, grab a bag and hit the trail. You won’t be disappointed.

OngoingGo QuestRoanoke Go Fest

Go Quest

Our popular 2020 event created as a unique way to challenge and bring friends together, when they might not be able to physically be near one another, is back again for 2021! Teams of up to six individuals will have exactly 96-hours, October 14-17, to complete 100+ missions.

Feel the GO Fest spirit as you venture from one mission to the next. You’ll keep up with competitors on the social feed and track your progress on the GO Quest leader-board, all on the app.

Find up to 5 other people (6 including you!) to form your team. These can be your quaranteam here in town, or you can team up from afar! These missions can be completed together or separately. Pick a team captain who will create the team in the registration portal, but each of you will need to register separately and “join” the appropriate team.

The missions will range in difficulty level and point value. Examples of missions include hiking/running the Roanoke 7 Summits, participating in a GO Fest scheduled activity like a bike clinic, completing your own beer mile, trash tag, or cooking a tasty treat out of something you find in nature.
