Outdoor Adventure Festival

August 16th, 2014


Cobb County Corps Property

(Allatoona Creek Trails)

5690 Old Stilesboro Rd.

Acworth, GA 30101


The second annual Outdoor Adventure Festival will take place Saturday, August 16th 2014. This is a free, family-friendly festival that will begin at 9:00am and goes on until noon. The festival will be held at the Cobb County Corps Property (Allatoona Creek Trails).

Participants will enjoy outdoor recreation and conservation activities through a variety of how-to sessions. Expert facilitators will introduce participants to activities such as: archery, birding, boating safety, bicycling, trapping, fly fishing, obstacle courses, shooting sports and hunting safety. Outdoor vendors will also be on hand to show the latest and greatest outdoor products.

The festival will have bicycle, running and hiking activities. Guided hikes are planned as well as guided trail runs. Bicycle demos will be on hand to let you try out the newest bikes on the market. There will be several bicycle contests for adults and kids such as: wheelie contest, limbo, bike toss and a slow race. For those outdoors men, women and kids who like to show off two activities at once, there will be a bicycle biathlon. The bicycle biathlon will be very similar to what you would see at the Winter Olympics; of course with a bicycle instead of cross country skis.

If you would like to be vendor, exhibitor or facilitator for this event or would like additional information, contact John Purcell at john.purcell@cobbcounty.org or (770) 528-8825.
