Diamond Brand Outdoors opened the area’s first gear shop in 1964. We love the outdoors and making sure our customers have what they need for the best experience. 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.
