Outside Adventure Expo Comes To Salt Lake City In June 2021

Lodestone Events, producers of the Overland Expo event series, has officially announced the first-ever Outside Adventure Expo™. The brand-new event will be held at Utah State Fairpark in Salt Lake City, Utah, June 25-27, 2021.

Outside Adventure Expo is a unique event for the off-road, outdoor, active lifestyle, and adventure-travel enthusiasts — an audience that is growing rapidly in Utah. Whether embarking on an off-road journey to explore the backcountry or venturing into high elevations to camp, mountain bike, hike, and rock climb, Adventure Expo hosts hundreds of exhibitors to help outfit your journey. Plus, there will be demos, workshops, and seminars to prepare you for your upcoming adventures.

Attendees can get inspired at the Adventure Theater or one of the many travel workshops hosted by top adventure experts. They then can gear up their next adventure with the latest camping and outdoor lifestyle equipment, mountain bikes, and off-road vehicles.

Outside Adventure Expo events will include:

  • Adventure Education Series: Learn tips from the pros and prepare for your next off-road or outdoor adventure in the Adventure Education seminar series. Hone outdoor photography and videography skills, listen to stories of world travels and meet outdoor adventurers from all over the world.

  • Camping, Off-Road and Outdoor Lifestyle Gear Vendors: From camping kitchens and rooftop tents to rock-climbing equipment and backpacking gear, Adventure Expo will have the gear attendees need for their next adventure from hundreds of top camping, off-road, adventure travel, and outdoor lifestyle gear and equipment manufacturers.

  • Adventure Theater: An inspiring and exciting compilation of films showcasing outdoor adventurers and overlanders exploring the outdoors.

  • Mountain Bike and E-Bike Demos: Test ride the latest mountain bikes and e-bikes. 

  • Adventure Rig Showcase: Hundreds of adventure-kitted rigs, motos, and vans will be on display. Attendees can register to get their ride in the show here.
