Cancelled: Hug-a-Tree Challenge at Roaring Camp

Canceled: Roaring Camp

Join us for the Hug-a-Tree Challenge

We have decided to cancel the in-person Hug-a-Tree Challenge event at Roaring Camp. While many in our community expressed excitement at coming together, too many can't commit to coming, and many vendors are understaffed and can't commit to supporting the event in person. We are truly sorry for any disappointment this may cause. And there is some good news: you can still join the global Hug-a-Tree Challenge, wherever you may be on Earth Day, where you can help establish a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for most photos of a person hugging a tree uploaded to Instagram in one hour.

While the event at Roaring Camp is canceled, we want to express our deep gratitude to sponsors including Heritage Bank, Roaring Camp, Scharf Investments, and Verve Coffee, and in-kind support from KAZU and Lookout Local.
