Part music festival and part outdoor expo, the Asheville Outdoor Show brings the latest trends in recreation and finest outdoor innovators known for quality, variety, and uniqueness directly to consumers who live in the outdoor playground of the mountains of North Carolina. BIG changes are coming to this one-of-a-kind community driven event celebrating all things outdoors in 2018! There will still be plenty of local gear makers and national innovators, but you’ll find more diverse offerings of interactive demos, educational workshops, and informative speakers.
This year’s keynote will be delivered by Teresa Baker, Founder of the African-American Parks & Nature Experience.
