Troutville Trail Days 2019

Don’t miss our area’s ultimate celebration of the Appalachain Trail! Troutville Trail Days is a true community effort, with local businesses, volunteers, scout troops, churches, musicians and more gathering to welcome the hikers passing thru and celebrate all the outdoor recreation our region has to offer.

RATC will be sharing a tent with ATC once again, so come on by and find out what’s new on the Trail! We’ll need a few volunteers to cover shifts at the tent, if you can help please say what shift you can cover in the comments below.

The weekend kicks off with a FREE Thru-Hiker Dinner and Community Social from 5-7pm on Friday!

Saturday is the main event at Troutville Town Park, with vendors and artisans, live music all day, contests and activities. There will be all kinds of activities for the littlest hikers to enjoy (not to mention the huge playground), and plenty of great raffles including a camping gear package from Outdoor Trails valued at $2,000.
