The 8 th annual Go!Fest will be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Chattanooga Zoo.
While there will be animals, music, and attractions to enjoy, the soul of Go!Fest is increasing
disability awareness. The continuous upbeat activities and attractions are not the only things to look
forward to. People of all abilities will gather to share experiences, and learn from each other.
Go!Fest was created by Mayor Ron Littlefield to help make Chattanooga more accessible to
everyone, regardless of their ability.
“This celebration is very close to my heart,” said Mayor Littlefield, “Go!Fest is a great way of
celebrating the fact that Chattanooga is a city for everyone.”
In addition to being a celebration of living life without limitations, Go!Fest features:
Adaptive athletics, including wheelchair basketball and cycling;
Live music and interactive entertainment;
Service dogs and demonstrations;
Booths showcasing educational, health resources and assistive technology;
Activities including a children’s area, a large “Touch-a-Truck”
exhibit that will feature fire trucks, military vehicles, police cars, ambulances
and S.W.A.T. vehicles
The Zoo is located at 1254 East 3rd Street.
