Been dreaming of outdoor adventure but don't have the gear or the experience to even get started?

Spokatopia has you covered.

"We are really excited to help people come out and try new outdoor activities," says Regan Farmer, an outdoor guide with Spokane Parks and Recreation, one of the event sponsors. "We've created really reasonable prices so people can come out and try up to nine excursions."

The one-day outdoor festival along the banks of the Spokane River at Camp Sekani Park will give attendees the chance to go geocaching, rock climbing, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and even whitewater rafting with help from knowledgeable guides. In addition to the nine unique outdoor excursions, exhibitors including the Washington Trails Association, Cool Water Bikes and the Spokane Riverkeepers will offer information, and there will be plenty of outdoor gear to check out. Slacklining and stunt bike demonstrations will offer thrills for spectators, or you can take part in the Up Chucker run and relax afterward in the beer garden with a pint from River City Brewing Company and live music.

Preregistration is encouraged, and parking is limited. Shuttle services every half-hour will be provided from the Avista, Pasadena Elementary School and John Shields Park parking lots.

"We anticipate up to 1,000 people will attend," Farmer says. "We hope to have this become a yearly event, building up to a multi-day festival."
