At Gear Fest you will find Used Gear and New Beer to Celebrate Earth Day, Craft Beer Week, and Pittsburgh’s Outdoors!
Buy and sell used outdoor equipment and clothing.
Its Spring, clean out those closets, basements, and garages and put some of that great outdoor gear to good use by selling to someone else. Watch this site for a link for sellers to register. There will be pre-event times to register and bring your gear for selling in advance in case you are busy the day of.
Shop local artisan outdoor inspired products like Apothecary Muse or Pack Up + Go. Discover parks, trails, and places to plan your next adventure be it climbing at Pittsburghs newest gym Ascend, a surprise trip with Pack Up + Go, or a new favorite trail in one of our beautiful State Parks.
There will be booths from local outdoor non-profits like BikePGH, Venture Outdoors, and more. Plus 1% of the used goods sales proceeds go to First Waves – www.firstwaves.org which supports getting local youth outdoors on our rivers.
And of course you can’t have gear with BEER, especially since it’s Craft Beer Week in Pittsburgh. Hop Farm Brewing Co., Spoonwood Brewing, and more will be on hand to sell their beer plus a few other local breweries. There will be live music as well to keep all entertained while they browse, shop, and just hangout sharing favorite outdoor stories.
The event is being organized by 3 Rivers Outdoor Co. and graciously hosted by the Ace Hotel of Pittsburgh.
