Fat Tire Festival
October 18 - October 20
At Southern Illinois Fat Tire Festival (FTF) we are celebrating 15 years of one of the best MTB events in the entire MidWest! This year’s event goes down October 18-20, 2019 at Camp Ondessonk located in Ozark, Illinois right in the middle of the beautiful Shawnee National Forest. We will have miles and miles of great riding with over 60 miles of trail this year with the latest addition being a fun and fast lake loop at CampO that is being built as we speak! Tons of fun riding all weekend long with both professionally guided and self-led adventures rolling out all weekend long.
We also make sure to cater to those looking for a little added adventure over the weekend or those just not as excited about MTB riding. This list has grown each year and is part of what makes Fat Tire Fest such a fun event for EVERYONE. Here are just a few of the other things going on at this year’s event: the Cannonball Gravel Race, guided hikes, the O’Face Adventure Race, live music, a great vendor expo, the Fat Tire Challenge, a Tunnel Hill Rail Trail ride, Strava Segment Challenges, family MTB rides, the Gravel Crit World Championships, bike demo’s all day Friday and Saturday and absolutely awesome food and drink for everyone all weekend long.
