ROC FEST – Special Event



October 13th-15th 2017

The Raptor Off-Road Community (ROC) invites you to an offroad, desert style jamboree for all makes and models of offroad vehicles. ROC Fest is a family friendly, three day desert offroad festival dedicated to sharing the experience and adventure around desert running. The event will be hosted in the Dead Camel Mountain area outside Fallon, Nevada, with over 321 miles of mapped trails and one central base / camping location.

ROC Fest is centered on showcasing setups and being able to see them in action.  We will have vendors in attendance showing off their products in a real world environment and allowing you to ask any questions you might have. Those vendors with vehicles will be able to give demo rides and show off their setups, products, and gear.

While showcasing setups is a central part of ROC Fest, driving the trails is of course the heart of the weekend.  Trails have been broken down into loops, ranging in duration from approximately one hour to multiple hour day loops.  We will have trips guided by ROC Fest staff.  These trips are fun for both the experienced and non-experienced offroader.  For the experienced offroaders with GPS and radio, we can download digital trail maps, allowing you and your buddies to go explore on your own.  Additionally, we will be leading several night runs, which not only provide an opportunity to test out your running lights and see how different light products perform, but also provide further opportunity for fun.

The central base for staging is also the BLM approved campsite. Bring your RV, camper trailer, toy hauler, and/or tent gear.  Each night we all gather around the BBQ to share stories from the day, kick back, relax and enjoy good food and beverage.  If camping is not your thing, you can still come and play.  Hotel accommodations are available in the nearby town of Fallon, a short 12 mile trail drive away.

As stated above, this is a BLM permitted event. This is not a competition or race, but a festival/jamboree. The primary goal of this annual event is to share the enjoyment that is offroading, hang out with old friends, make new friends and, most importantly, close down the desert offroad season in an epic fashion!

Can’t wait to see everyone at ROC Fest.
