First Annual ROC FEST! - October 9th-11th 2015

Welcome to the first annual ROC FEST at the Proving Grounds! Raptor Off-Road Community (R.O.C.) 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 in the Dead Camel Mountain area outside Fallon, NV with over 240 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 Fallon, which is a short 12 mile trail ride away.

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 Northern California and Nevada. 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!

Can’t wait to see everyone at ROC Fest

Accommodations / Camping
Discount rooms have been arranged at Comfort Inn Fallon for $85.00 a night (Tax/fees Inc), which can be booked on the registration page. If we run out of rooms at the Comfort Inn, we will add additional rooms as needed at the Best Value Inn Fallon.

Camping is at a BLM approved campsite and is no cost. You are responsible for packing out everything you bring in and making sure we return the area back to how it was when we got there, if not better. AKA pick up after yourself.

If weather turns south on us, we will cancel the event so we do not tear up the trails and keep everyone safe. Refunds will be issued if canceled and the event will be rescheduled.

Optional item
If you wish to purchase additional T-shirts for friends or family members, they can be added to your registration for $15 a shirt.

Still Plenty of time to sign up. See more details at the event page

Final day to sign up is 10/5 so we have enough time to have shirts printed.

For those who wish to camp there are no hook ups at the approved site. You must bring everything in and out.

Well we got all the prerunning wrapped up for ROC FEST. And man are the trails awesome. A little of everything for everyone. Just what we wanted. My personal favorite is a deep sandy/silty portion of one of the trails. It's a blast.

Knocked out the prerun video to give you a taste of the trails and the fun ahead at ROC FEST! Open to any and all vehicles that want to go play in the dirt for a few days. Razors and other offroads toys welcome. Most of the group is camping for those who are still trying to deiced what to do.

Enjoy the video
