We kick off the weekend with our Outdoor Recreation Summit – a day of learning and sharing for those in the recreation industry. Saturday is the BIG DAY – our free to the public Outdoor Recreation EXPO where 70 exhibitors and 700 people come together to celebrate outdoor recreation and find new ways to get outside and play. On Sunday you can bring it all together and spend the day exploring a new place or a new sport with our excursions. Read more below and we look forward to seeing you in February!
