Check Out What Off-Grid Expo Has to Offer!
We are so excited for the annual Off-Grid Expo, being held at Jefferson County Fairgrounds next weekend, October 4-6!
Here’s our top list of reasons to check out the show:
12 – Mattersville
A non-profit creating a community for veterans using off-grid tiny homes. We’re donating $1 for each beer sold to this worthy effort. Check out their model home in the activity area and have a drink for a good cause.
11 – Food Trucks
10 – Chill With ENO
There will be a *bunch* of hammocks hung up on the trees by the picnic area, graciously provided by ENO. If you need a moment to digest lunch or a really great education session that’s your spot!
9 – Ebike Demos
There are not 1, not 2 but THREE ebike companies exhibiting at Off-Grid Expo! If you are interested in getting farther off grid with an ebike, make sure to take them all for a spin on our ebike course.
8 – Bouldering
Colorado Mountain Club is bringing the bouldering bus, complete with loads of holds on the inside and pads to catch you when/if you fall on the bottom. You’ll definitely want to check it out and see if you can keep up with the kids! (side note: this will only be available Sat and Sun)
7 – Archery Course
BassPro is bringing their kid-friendly archery course so swing by and see if becoming the next Robin Hood is in their future.
6 – Live Music!
Colorado favorites Yarrow, The Higher Ground Band, Jerry and Joy, John Adam Smith and Kelly Kerr will be performing on the stage in the Beer Garden for the afternoons each day. Which leads us to our next point….
5 – Beer and Wine
Not only can you grab a cold one and enjoy it while you walk around the show grounds, Juniper Overland and Four Wheel Campers are sponsoring happy hour on Saturday from 4-5:30 where you can grab a complimentary drink on them! Grab a drink token at their booth by the flagpoles, grab a drink and then come back out and check out their *sweet* truck campers, vehicle builds and options for getting your vehicle off-road-ready!
4 – Demos From 7P
7P Overland is a leader in being prepared for the gnarliest of excursions. With experts on site to give tips on lashing down gear, inspecting your vehicle on a long journey and what to keep in your toolkit you’ll want to soak in their free advice to make your next off-grid adventure a success.
3 – Swag Giveaways!
300 dry bags. 1000 scream whistles. ENO hammocks and lounge chairs. Zamp solar kits. Skeeter Beater screens. And did we mention free beer?! Giveaways from Adventure Frog will be distributed at the entrance while the raffle will take place at the Beer Garden each day at 4:00.
2 – Education Sessions
We are so excited about the incredible line up of education we have, all of which is included with your ticket. It runs the gamut from solar and off-grid experts (emu building systems, Jack’s solar garden, Iron Edison) to outdoor recreation tips (elk hunting and trout fishing tips with Tightline Outdoors). Check out the full schedule here and make sure to come to a session (or 5!) at the picnic tables!
1 – Incredible Sponsors and Exhibitors
With the top names in the outdoor, off-grid, overland industries you will want to stop by all the vendor booths on the main road and on the grass. 3 companies are launching and 6 are bringing new products to market. Close to half of the exhibitors are based here in Colorado. Come check out your local brands and see the innovation that they are bringing to allow us all a way to access, maintain and thrive in the outdoors that we all love.
