Adventure + Gear = A Can't Miss Weekend Festival! (And Giveaway)

If you are an outdoor junkie, adventure seeker, occasionally make it into the mountains, or even just sometimes look out the window and think it might be nice to get out there, I have an event for you to get giddy and excited about!  It pains me to think that I almost didn't know it was happening and would regret not giving you the opportunity to get as excited about going as I am...and chance to go, of course, with a giveaway, but you'll have to keep reading...

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...

Demo areas:
 Mountain Biking, Longboarding,Slackline, Zipline, & more

Exhibitors covering: 
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...





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.

  2. 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. :)

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  30. 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
  31. 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
  39. Exciting! Camping is so much fun for kids and nice to get away from the normal routine.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm training for my very first 5k right now and never thought I would. I know you can do it, too!

    ReplyDelete
  41. It is going to be an incredible event for Salt Lake City, bringing all the adventure activities together in one place.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Doesn't that look insane! You'll have to let me know what you think of it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks, Brook. Italy has some pretty great adventure activities, too. We hiked the Cinque Terre a few years ago and loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Health buffs and wanna-be's, too, I guess. Should be a fun time.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I hope you do. Kids are never too little, though. They teach us so much by what they see when they're outdoors.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I know-it is going to be exactly what we need to get excited about summer adventuring!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am SO curious what in the world a pig jig is...it sounds pretty uniquely interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  48. "...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 BUSY
