The inaugural High Knob Outdoor Festival will be held in downtown Norton on Saturday, August 18, 2018. The festival will showcase the High Knob region’s outdoor recreation opportunities through demonstrations, outings on the mountain, and festivities in downtown Norton. 

The festival will celebrate the communities, businesses, and organizations dedicated to promoting and growing the region’s outdoor recreation potential. This will be a free, family-friendly festival organized through the City of Norton and the Wise County Cooperative Extension Office.

We invite you to explore the High Knob Region by participating in one of the outdoor excursions being held on the mountain from 9 a.m-4 p.m. on Aug. 18. Plan to then spend the afternoon from 2-7 p.m. exploring the region's outdoor adventures through activities and booths featuring the communities, outfitters, and organizations that call High Knob home.

The festival will also offer food trucks and live music. This year's featured artists will include Hello October, 49 Winchester, and Will Cassell.
