That’s why we’ve made the Asheville Outdoor Show open to brands by invitation only. We want to showcase innovators known for quality, variety, and uniqueness. The Asheville Outdoor Show brings the finest outdoor brands and latest trends in recreation directly to consumers who live in the outdoor playground of the mountains of North Carolina.

This year includes an expanded music schedule, family adventure zone (featuring a climbing wall from Camp Cedar Cliff), yard games, and a nonprofit village. Fix It Man and Flying Pig FREE Gear Repairs will also be on hand to repair any backpacks, sleeping bags, or other gear that needs a few stitches to be functional again!
