514er Fest is a multi-sport mountain festival, featuring Off-Roading, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Fly Fishing, and Trail Running in Buena Vista, Colorado. Join us for trail events, clinics, festival camping, live music, local libations, and amazing vendors, September 23rd – September 25th.
At the heart of the festival you’ll find that 14er Fest seeks to join together a wide variety of trail users, including both motorized and non-motorized trail enthusiasts. Our vision is to create a platform where all trail groups can recreate together and work together to keep trails open and maintained.
14er Fest is presented by The Trailhead and Colorado Off Road Enterprise – CORE. The Trailhead is Buena Vista’s locally owned and operated outdoor retailer, and CORE is a motorized action group based out of Buena Vista. We are a mix of both motorized and non-motorized trail users who have teamed up to bring you 14er Fest – a celebration of fall in the Rocky Mountains.
Our team’s inspiration comes from the amazing 14,000 foot peaks that surround Buena Vista, Colorado. Our county has the highest concentration of 14ers in all of Colorado and in all of the United States. These peaks coupled with the Arkansas River that flows right through downtown BV have inspired us to create a festival that supports the incredible environment where we live, work and play.
