New River Sports and Auto Festival Begins

FAYETTE COUNTY– The kickoff for the New River Sports and Auto Festival is underway.

After a 22 year absence of the Sports Festival in Fayette County, it is back with a new tradition. During the next three days local businesses will participate throughout the county to highlight their business. This event is a true community event that will engage members of the entire family. At Timber Trek Ropes at Adventures on the Gorge, members of the community received special discounts for Thursday’s event.

Marketing Director Pj Stevens says, “Fayette County is well known across the world for outdoor adventures, so we thought it would be a natural fit to be involved in the Sports Fest and showcase some of the great outdoors adventures that we have here.”
