The 7th annual Blue Ridge Trout & Outdoor Adventures Festival returns to downtown Blue Ridge in Fannin County on April 27. The event gathers fishermen, river sports enthusiasts and outdoor recreation fans and families at Downtown City Park for fun, education, food, entertainment and services while increasing the public’s knowledge of trout and cold-water conservation associated with Trout Unlimited.

Trout Fest ’24 includes a Toccoa River tagged-trout Fishing Derby from March 26 to April 27. No prior registration is required.   

Net proceeds of Trout Fest ’24 support cold-water conservation, education, recreation and community awareness and outreach programs funded in part by Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited.

The Festival—rain or shine—includes vendors, exhibits, food, craft beer and a concert by Michelle Malone. For information about sponsorships, vendor applications, event details and more, please visit the BRTF website at, or search for the Facebook page.
