The Adventure + Gear Mountain Fest is the event that brings Utah’s outdoor industry together and welcomes outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to experience on-mountain events, demos, clinics, mountain film, outdoor photography, live music, dozens of the latest adventure vans, vehicles, off road trailers and a Gear Market with over 100+ local and national brands, retailers and non-profit vendors in active adventure sports and travel. All of Snowbird’s summer activities will be running and there’s a good chance that die-hard skiers may be able to even squeeze in a few late spring ski runs on Snowbird’s world-class slopes.
This year’s festival takes place once again at Snowbird on Friday, June 28, from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Saturday, June 29, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, June 30, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free, but some registration fees apply for select activities.
“We are thrilled with the participation and enthusiasm of brands, retailers, non-profit vendors and visitors continue to grow each year of the Adventure+Gear Mountain Fest,” said Landon John, co-producer of the event. “The sheer volume and variety of activities, events, and experiences available to our guests – for no admission fee – is such a unique opportunity, and we look forward to welcoming everyone seeking to fuel their existing outdoor passions or discover a new one.”
This year’s Adventure+Gear Mountain Fest is supported by the Utah Outdoor Association, which aims to unify all organizations within Utah’s outdoor industry in its pursuit of economic development, conservation and recreational opportunities. As Utah’s largest interactive adventure festival offering endless ways to recreate and appreciate the Beehive State’s unparalled terrain, Adventure+Gear Mountain Fest and the Utah Outdoor Association’s efforts naturally go hand in hand.
