Live Outside and Play Fall Festivals and Events

It’s hard to believe September is almost half over. We’re counting down the days until summer finally fades into fall. It’s been a hot one… The days are getting shorter but the leaves haven’t quite started to change yet. With that being said, we’re looking forward to cooler days and some really great events. Here is a rundown of where we’ll be this fall.

Gauley Fest
September 13th through 16th | Summersville, West Virginia 

The weather may be turning, but there’s still time to get on the water at Gauley Fest. Come hang with the river people and celebrate rivers together. This is American Whitewater’s largest fundraiser of the season and it’s a wild one!

The Festy Experience

GO Outside Festival
October 12th through 14th | Roanoke, Virginia 

We’ve never been to a festival with as many events as the GO Outside Fest. We suggest you join for the whole weekend, but if you come for one day, make sure it’s the day with the superhero race.

Bridge Day
October 20th | New River Gorge, West Virginia 

What’s more thrilling than watching hundreds of BASE jumpers throw themselves off the New River Gorge Bridge? Jumping yourself. This festival celebrates the iconic bridge and allows jumpers to hurdle themselves off it for one day a year.
