BLK OUT FEST

First Outdoor Company + Lookout Mountain Conservancy presents the Blk Out Fest. 

 

The Blk Out Fest is a climbing + outdoor festival centering and celebrating Black excellence in rock climbing. This 3-day, 2-night festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee is designed to celebrate the accomplishments of Black athletes, entrepreneurs and creatives through film screenings, a community fellowship dinner and the open air Blk Mkt shopping experience.

This retreat-style festival is designed to provide a safe space for mental wellness & rejuvenation for Black climbers but is open to all who supports increasing diversity in climbing. Our commitment to climate action includes local shuttle transportation, composting and an all plant-based menu.
