Happy hour, craft beer, and cocktails

Happy hour at Overland Expo is the best way to cap off a day of adventure. Head over to the XPLOR Oasis Bar from 5-7PM to grab a drink, meet your friends, listen to live music, and swap stories from the day. You’ll have a chance to connect with some of our event partners and get the inside scoop on all the overlanding gear!

All weekend long, the bar will be featuring craft beer from Arizona Wilderness Brewing and canned cocktails from Loyal 9, Crown Royal, and Captain Morgan. If you’ve got a taste for bourbon, the mixologists over at the Stillhouse Ramada will be stirring up whiskey cocktails for your sipping pleasure.

Keep in mind that Flagstaff is located at 7000 feet above sea level and staying hydrated is a must! We’ll have water fill stations throughout the venue to keep your canteen topped off, plus we’ve got canned water, served up with a side of sustainability. Proud Source Water will be available throughout the weekend and supported by Replynsh recycling program to manage the cans.

Plus, plenty of parties

Just in case you needed another reason to camp at Overland Expo for the weekend, the evening exhibitor parties are not to be missed! Some will have hot chocolate and smores, others will have beer and bourbon, but either way the parties are a great way to engage with the community and have a great time with your friends.

If you’re a motorcyclist, the Rider Justice Moto Party is not to be missed. Your ticket includes a catered dinner, drinks, live music by the E&O Medicine Show, and awesome moto raffle prizes. The Rider Justice Moto Party sells out at every event, so don’t forget to get your add-on ticket to take part in the fun.
