The fusion of music, outdoor events, good people, great times and the city of Richmond, VA’s unique personality make Dominion Riverrock one of the most dynamic and entertaining summer festivals in the East!
Dominion Riverrock provides a awesomely curated experience for all of those who attend. Whether your interests are mountain biking, trail running, kayaking, adventure racing or even the air dog dock competition for your canine, this event celebrates the great outdoors while being extremely accessible in the heart of Richmond and set against the stunning backdrop of the James River. This event is one at which Osprey is able to connect with both avid, longtime pack-users and those just discovering the outdoors.
As Spring blooms, so does our excitement for the 12th Annual Red Rock Rendezvous which takes place in the beautiful Red Rock Canyon just outside of Las Vegas, NV and is hosted by Osprey Packs retailer Mountain Gear.

If you’ve ever gone home from OR to a partner or roommate who’s never been, it can be tough to explain just why you’re so exhausted when you return. But if you’ve ever experienced the madness, fun and fluorescent lights of this show yourself, you know that it takes about a week’s time to recover fully from the happy hours, meetings and never-ending events. Maybe you’re in the recovery phase right now; maybe you missed the show and want to know what happened. Either way, here’s just a bit of what went down at this year’s epic Outdoor Retailer show!
Day One capped off with a performance from The Infamous Stringdusters at SLC’s Depot, which kicked off their American Rivers Tour, “an epic summer music adventure stopping through, and winding down, some of American’s wildest and most beloved rivers and surrounding communities.”
Osprey’s Marketing Manager Gareth Martins shows support for the Colorado River, which supports 250,000 sustainable recreation industry jobs across the southwest. Day two’s Conservation Alliance Breakfast with Pete McBride taught us that” in 2013, American Rivers named the Colorado River the nation’s #1 most endangered river due to drought, over-allocation and climate change.” Visit www.StandUpForCoRiver.com to learn more about the campaign to save the Colorado.
As always, the end of Summer OR can only mean one thing: it’s time to start the countdown to Winter OR. Ready, go!
It’s that time again… Outdoor Retailer Summer Market kicks off this Wednesday and we’ve got a great line-up of events and giveaways for you! Here’s our down and dirty list of events…
Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. It’s September and we’re living it up for all we’re worth this month to take advantage of these last days of summer. What is crucial to living it up in style? A really great playlist… so we’re dedicating this month to music. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
One of our favorite late summer events is Telluride Blues and Brews, a festival just a hop, skip and a boogie north of us here at Osprey HQ. We’re psyched to be a returning sponsor of the event and even more psyched to head to the festival in a couple of weeks to throw down with some incredible musicians.
In anticipation of the festival, we’ve decided to giveaway a festival pass along with some sweet Osprey travel gear! All you have to do, is answer a few trivia questions…
Here we go… it’s Outdoor Retailer time again! Lots of great events and promotions lined up at OR Show this year. Hope to see you soon!
The gates open today at 10:00 a.m. for the 38th Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Osprey is excited to be a part of the action over the next four days! The weather is Colorado bluebird, the backdrop stunning mountain peaks and the music non-stop. Who could really ask for more!?
If you get a chance between sets be sure to carve out a moment to swing by Osprey festival headquarters to check out all that is new for summer 2011.We’ll also have some fantastically great deals on a full array of technical daypacks, couriers and hydration packs perfect for any festival and far beyond. This is the perfect time to set yourself up not only for the festival, but also for the active, outdoor summer and fall beyond. In addition to onsite deals, we will be providing free pack sizings and fittings throughout the festival.
We are a friendly bunch here for the same reasons you are: to have fun and enjoy live music and the outdoors, in a spectacularly beautiful setting! Please stop in and give us a holler while you enjoy the long weekend!
Here’s some good tunes to get you going…
