October 18th-20th 2018
Welcome to ROC FEST V at the Porter Springs! Raptor Off-Road Community (ROC.) invites you to an off-road desert style jamboree for all makes and models of offroad vehicles. ROC Fest is a three day desert off-road festival dedicated to share the experience and adventure around desert running. The event will be hosted near Lovelock, with over 219 miles of mapped trails and one central base / camping location.
Our goal is to make a fun three day event that brings the offroad community together and gives us an opportunity to get our vehicles dirty. This is also to show those who want to close down our public lands that we as an offroad community can have fun and leave a place the same as we found it.
ROC Fest is a family friendly event centered on showcasing setups and being able to see them in action and ask questions of vendors. Therefore, 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.
The trails at the event are broken down into loops from one hour to multiple hours. Digital trail maps will be provided to those with GPS so you and your buddies can go get dirty. Those who are new to offroading and have no radios or GPS can go on the guided runs so you won’t get lost and so you will have back up if you get into trouble. There will be several night runs, which will allow you to test out your running lights and see how the different light products preform.
The central base for staging is also the BLM approved campsite. Bring your RV, camper trailer, toy hauler, or tent gear to share evenings around the BBQ. Share your stories from the day and kick back a few adult beverages or sodas. For those with little ones, or if camping is not your thing, accommodations are available in Lovelock, which is 28 miles away from camp.
As stated above, this is a BLM permitted event. This is not a competition or race, but a festival/jamboree to make an annual event for the off-roaders of our community. This is a festival to share the enjoyment that is off-roading, to hang out with friends, meet loads of new ones and most importantly close down the desert off-road season in an epic fashion!
