Frank Costanza probably had the right idea when he came up with Festivus as an alternative to the conventional, corporate-dominated Christmas holiday. Following June’s OR Summer Market, Osprey is hosting an event for all outdoor industry partners that promises to be a relaxed gathering free of corporate aftertaste. This August will mark the first annual Pack-A-Palooza, to be held in Durango Colorado, as a celebration of trails and a chance for the outdoor industry to convene and collectively enjoy the mountains. The event will also generate proceeds to support attending non-profit trail organizations that work to protect and preserve the outdoors. Osprey is encouraging all outdoor industry partners to join in sponsoring the not to be missed event.
Tucked away in a remote corner of Colorado, the San Juan Mountains and adjacent high desert have their reputation as an outdoor haven for a reason. If you’ve ever considered making your way out to Southwest Colorado to savor the local hills and hollers, the incentive just got better. For those with a competitive bent, several races are planned including the 10K Hella Fun Footrace, twisted triathlon and Bliss Off Bike Race. The Toy Town, featuring exhibits from the best outdoor companies in the world, will offer a peek at the latest goods. Attendees to the event will also delight in delicious local ales and food from Durango’s own Steamworks Brewing Company.
In an effort to enjoy an OR-free August, Osprey’s Pack-A-Palooza offers a fun, relaxing and corporate-free occasion for the whole outdoor industry. Contact Osprey Packs for complete information on Pack-A-Palooza including event information, sponsorship opportunities and travel/lodging deals.
