At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

If you aim to fill your days with more dirt, sunshine, and people who love the outdoors as much as you do, then allow us to introduce you to a new event for outdoor enthusiasts — Outpost. (You’re going to want to get in on this.)

Outpost’s new yearly event combines a festival-style experience with the professional networking and educational opportunities of a traditional industry conference.

The goal is to bring adventure lovers, media outlets, brands, and buyers together in one space, where everyone can experience and learn about current trends, market issues, and products within the outdoor industry, while participating in the outdoor activities we love.

Interested participants can buy a ticket and head to the California Redwoods to participate in Outpost from September 7 – 9 this year. A confluence of outdoor enthusiasts, brands, and media will gather at Camp Navarro in California for three days of music, panels, workshops, and food.

Current partners and participants of Outpost include Burton, REI Co-Op, and Teva to name a few, along with several regional micro breweries and health food brands. Though specific details have not yet been released, panels this year will be hosted by Sunset, INC, and Civilized. Last year’s panel on Consumer Behavior was hosted by Josh Constine of TechCrunch and included participation from David Hua, the Vice President of Retail at REI.

Workshops will also take place at this year’s Outpost event. Attendees can look forward to yoga, group mountain biking, and group activities like cooking, and cocktail making.

Evening entertainment will infuse the event with a lively and refreshing atmosphere. Mansionaire, an Australian band, and Bayonne, a solo-artist from Austin, TX are lined up to perform live on Thursday night. There will also be live stand-up comedy presented by Funny or Die.

Providing participants with the chance to experience products up close, Airstream will be on hand showcasing the Basecamp as well as their classic full-sized trailer. There will even be motorcycle demos, and for animal lovers, an Affectionate Falcons workshop hosted by West Coast Falconry.
