The GEAR Up Expo is back for its second year to help you get the best experiences and outdoor gear this summer. Swing by for some fun April 26–27 at the Comcast Arena at Everett, Wash.

The event’s theme, “Get Outdoors,” covers an array of classic Northwest activities, including hiking, camping, mountaineering, running, cycling, kayaking and much more. With 90,000 square feet of show floor, there’s plenty of room for the 200 exhibitors showing off the best gear and travel opportunities of the season—think outdoor retail shops, dealers, manufacturers, travel destination resources and the like. New this year, you’ll also find a special Everett recreational boat area.

OutdoorsNW will be on hand with an interactive gear and product exhibit, as well as it’s world-famous Corn Hole Game! Swing by and don’t forget to sign up for a chance to win a huge variety of cool prizes!

If that’s not enough to keep you busy, get your Expo passport stamped by exhibitors to win prizes, head over to the 150-seat adventure theater or the 30-foot climbing wall. Adventure explorer Helen Thayer will present a keynote presentation Saturday, April 26 at 1:30 p.m.

Hot tip: Get to GEAR right when the doors open; the climbing wall is free the first two hours of the show (10 a.m.– noon) both days.
