[ARCHIVED] GO Fest Activities to Be Held This Weekend

The 2020 GO Fest will be held this weekend, Oct. 16-18. However, out of respect to COVID-19 precautions, this year GO Fest cannot happen in the traditional sense. Instead, to keep the spirit of GO Fest alive, the event will offer activities including a benefit concert, epic team challenge, gear raffles, and small-scale outings spread throughout the region.

This year’s GO Fest has two missions: To get as many people recreating outside as possible, and to raise $100,000 for Project Outside.

The public can purchase tickets to see “Andy Frasco & The U.N.” at Maher Field (sales end Thursday at midnight), volunteer to help out at the concert, order some limited edition GO Fest and Project Outside merchandise, or get entries to win outdoor gear and experiences with the Rally Up Raffle.

Beyond that, citizens are encouraged to make an effort to go on some kind of outing this weekend and enjoy our region's great outdoors!
