2018 activities and workshops


6-7pm – Backpacking 101 with Blue Ridge Outdoor Magazine

From the low country of South Carolina to the craggy peaks of Colorado (and beyond), we have logged hundreds of miles on foot. Come hang out Friday night of Cheat Fest and learn more about what it takes to plan and execute a backpacking trip! We’ll be sharing stories, tips, and some of our favorite trips. Bring your questions and your gear for the Q&A afterwards! We’ll be handing out free swag from our sponsors, too. That’s a win-win for you!

Email questions to roadteam@blueridgeoutdoors.com.
