What Is It?
A 2-day festival bringing Utah's best adventure, travel, and outdoor companies and products together in one place, giving you a chance to try products you've been drooling over, get tips and advice on how to make your outdoor time more fulfilling, and be inspired by our state's most passionate outdoor enthusiasts. It's an event for the whole family and will definitely have something for everyone...
Mountain Biking, Longboarding,Slackline, Zipline, & more
Biking, Running, Camping, Rafting, Climbing, & more
If you can dream of doing it, there will be someone at the Adventure+Gear Fest who can teach you about it, and probably even let you try it out.
In addition to the 2 full days of festival events in the SouthTowne Expo Center, the Adventure+Gear Fest is also partnering up with great organizations to offer additional cultural and athletic opportunities to enjoy during the weekend...

The Wasatch Mountain Film Festival is being presented by Wasatch Mountain Arts and is the first of it's kind in the Salt Lake area. The films will focus on a passion for the outdoors, both playing in it and be responsible to take care of it. It's going to be an incredible night of family-friendly entertainment. We're taking B & P and I have no doubt we'll be watching them try to do the crazy stunts they see for the rest of the summer.

Being offered by Sandy City and Wasatch Running Center, the coolest thing about this race is that it's FREE for the 1st 300 to sign up. (We were only about the 20th to sign up a few days ago, so your chances should be good). Choose between a 5K, 5-mile, or 10-mile run and at the end enjoy the rest of the Adventure+Gear festival with a complimentary entrance fee. It's going to be a great time way to exercise, enjoy the area, and then head inside for everything else the festival has to offer.
Please tell me you are jumping out of your seat excited
to bring the whole family up for these two days of excitement!
And now the, giveaways. I was so excited about this event that I contacted Adventure+Gear Fest and asked them to sponsor 2 giveaways for you, my fantastic readers. They were more than generous offering 3 prizes. Be sure to enter both giveaways...
Interested in volunteering for the Adventure+Gear Fest?
I'll be there, come join me!
Oh this is exciting! My hubs loves the outdoors I think if given the chance he would stay out there especially on cool nights where it's not so cold and not so hot. Good Luck to everyone who enters.ReplyDelete
My husband is the same! I love being out there as much as he does, but once it gets cold I have to really really love what we're doing. :)ReplyDelete
I live in the most boring place in the entire world, or so I'm learning. I'd love to go to a Film Festival one day. But no, we're stuck with a pig jig. I. Kid. You. Not.ReplyDelete
Oh this makes me want to go hiking. And camping. And fishing. I should check out that expo.ReplyDelete
What a great giveaway and something that inspires one to be healthy!ReplyDelete
It sounds like a great festival for outdoor lovers. My family love to go on outdoor adventures but we don't do hiking or adventure sports, etc. When our little one is older hopefully we will.ReplyDelete

I would like to participate in a race someday. These events sounds fun to join to.ReplyDelete
What a great giveaway! We hope to be a little more outdoorsy this summer. Hope to go on our first family camping trip.ReplyDelete
It sounds like a great and fun event. My husband would love it as he likes running. Thanks for the giveawayReplyDelete
SO close to buying a ticket to the states just to go. I wish they did something like this in Australia! Love this kind of thingReplyDelete
climbing wall, slack lining, food trucks, the run! this looks awesomeReplyDelete
I will bring my hubby!ReplyDelete
I wish I liked the outdoors more. I hope to do better about it this year. I think hiking would be very peaceful.ReplyDelete
This will be so much fun for our whole family. My boys would LOVE to do the Strider Track!!ReplyDelete
Wow, this looks great for outdoorsy people. I am not quite so adventurous but they seem like awesome races and activities.ReplyDelete
What awesome giveaways!! These products all look really awesome! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
This looks like an awesome event for those who are active or into sports!ReplyDelete
That is a wonderful and exciting giveaway! My hubby is so much into that!ReplyDelete
Oh, how exciting! Either one of those events would be so fun to attend. Great giveaway!ReplyDelete
Climbing wall for sure, we'd try out slack lining, I would wanna check out all the running stuff tooReplyDelete
I'm bringing my husband & my almost 1 year old daughter =) We're trying to get her hooked on adventure early!ReplyDelete
If Mom and Dad are doing it, I'm sure she'll LOVE it! (At least that's the theory we're going on with our kids). Good luck with the giveaway!ReplyDelete
I'm excited to try out the slack line, also. And hoping to score a good deal on a new tent.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! And that's my thought as well =D How old are your kiddos? Love it! Right now we've just been packing her around on hikes and ski tours, but excited to try out some camping and eventually backpacking with her...ReplyDelete
Our youngest are 2 1/2 year old twins. When our oldest was 6 weeks we took him camping and he didn't die, so we made it a tradition and have done it with all of them. I love that you're packing her around. It won't be long before she's begging you to get down and run off in front of you.ReplyDelete
Wow, that is a jam packed weekend! That looks like such a fun time! Entering the giveaway now... wish me luck!ReplyDelete
Good luck! I'm going to be like a kid in a candy store, so much to see and do!ReplyDelete
I love that there are going to be such a wide range of activities represented-a little something for everyone!ReplyDelete
Mine, too! I'm hoping to get them on the slackline and see how they like that, too!ReplyDelete
Hiking is so peaceful, and you can completely do it at your own pace. I hope you get out to try it this summer!ReplyDelete
You would definitely be the most committed person there! :) Good luck finding something similar close to home.ReplyDelete
It's not too often that you find a free 5k. It should be a great activity!ReplyDelete
Exciting! Camping is so much fun for kids and nice to get away from the normal routine.ReplyDelete
I'm training for my very first 5k right now and never thought I would. I know you can do it, too!ReplyDelete
It is going to be an incredible event for Salt Lake City, bringing all the adventure activities together in one place.ReplyDelete
Doesn't that look insane! You'll have to let me know what you think of it.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Brook. Italy has some pretty great adventure activities, too. We hiked the Cinque Terre a few years ago and loved it!ReplyDelete
Health buffs and wanna-be's, too, I guess. Should be a fun time.ReplyDelete
I hope you do. Kids are never too little, though. They teach us so much by what they see when they're outdoors.ReplyDelete
I know-it is going to be exactly what we need to get excited about summer adventuring!ReplyDelete
I am SO curious what in the world a pig jig is...it sounds pretty uniquely interesting!ReplyDelete
"...and he didn't die, so..." hahaha, that cracked me up. It also gives me hope, so thank you! I know you're right- she's actually turning one TOMORROW- it sure flies by. 2.5 y/o twins sounds FUN and also BUSYReplyDelete
I would love to bring my dadReplyDelete
I'll bring my husband & baby daughter :)ReplyDelete
At this point, we'd love to participate in as many of the activities as we can! We love the outdoors.ReplyDelete
Aw how fun! I wish I could pop over to Utah for the weekend and enjoy the festival. It sounds great!ReplyDelete
I got your message on twitter, but I haven't seen an email yet. I'm excited!ReplyDelete
That's odd. I'll msg you more info on Twitter...just a sec...ReplyDelete
