Southern Illinois Fat Tire Festival
October 14, 2022 @ 9:00 am - October 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm
Southern Illinois Fat Tire Festival (FTF) happening again for the 18th year in a row, one of the best MTB events in the entire MidWest! This year’s event goes down October 14-16, 2022, 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 for all levels of riders from mellow flow to rugged all mountain boulder strewn rowdiness. Tons of fun riding all weekend with both professionally guided and self-led adventures rolling out both Friday and Saturday.
FTF has something for everyone, from those wanting to ride every minute of the day to those tagging along to enjoy some time in the great outdoors. The list of fun evolves each year and is part of what makes Fat Tire Fest such a fun event for EVERYONE. The year the list includes a 30+ miles of onsite trails to explore at any time. This includes the 10+ miles of fun and flowy trails handcrafted specifically for MTB riding that weave thru the 800+ acres of CampO property. We will also have offsite riding options Saturday at the new Touch of Nature Trail network in Makanda and the Glendale MTB Trails, the original home of FTF. Continuing on with the MTB fun, Saturday late afternoon we will once again host the Off-Road Crit race on a super fun one mile course, 30 minutes of racing for bragging rights all weekend long.
