Excited to get outside this spring, but need some extra help getting prepared? The Outdoor Gear Builders of Western North Carolina know that great gear makes for a great trip, so they’ve got everything ready for you to take the first step toward adventure success at the Get in Gear Fest in Asheville, N.C.



The Get in Gear Fest, taking place this Saturday, March 19 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at RiverLink Performance Plaza, will have a little something for every outdoor enthusiast. Backpacks, bikes, boats, crashpads, tents: you name it, they’ll bring it. Plus, the Gear Builders suppliers will have plenty of that gear on hand for test runs. Meanwhile, your fellow athletes will show you how it’s done with demos, examples, and clinics. Even beer enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to thanks to the many local breweries that will be joining the crowd.

There will be more gear for sale than you’ll know what to do with, but you might also get the chance walk away with some of it – minus that pesky pricetag. Silent auctions, races, and giveaways galore will take place throughout the day, so come grab your own opportunity to win.

Some of the proceeds from the beer sales during the event will benefit RiverLink, a local environmental conservation non-profit working to protect the French Broad River area. Good gear, good beer, good cause… good deal!
