Virginia Outdoor Lovers Weekend in Radford April 22

The Virginia Outdoor Lovers Expo on April 22, 2017 will be a weekend full of outdoor adventure! With FREE events for the novice nature-lover, to the more advanced folks who are looking for that next adrenaline rush, this expo handles all of that. The Expo will have live music, beer, raffle tickets, giveaways, and more. The event will be held in Radford’s Bisset Park on the banks of the New River from 10am- 4pm.  This third annual event raises awareness of the diverse outdoor recreation opportunities that are abundant across Southwest Virginia.  DGIF Regional Fisheries Manager, Bill Kittrell, invites participants to visit the Agencies exhibit to learn about the many opportunities to enjoy hunting, fishing, boating and wildlife viewing in the Southwest region. Spend the first day learning about new destinations to hike, bike, kayak, rock climb, or try something new with the many other activities the region provides. Local businesses, clubs, outdoor organizations, and others will be on hand to share information to get you out on your next outdoor adventure.

Want more? Book an off-site trip to explore somewhere new with your family or friends by joining a guided excursion.  Appalachian Spring, a 19-county, Southwest Virginia community and economic development regional initiative, sponsors the event which has more than 80 vendors and demonstrations from throughout the region.
