Outdoor Adventure Expo

Thank you for a successful OAE! We look forward to 2022!

Outdoor Adventure Expo 2021

Sunday, October 3, 2021 from 12 pm to 5 pm. |  Talleyrand Park

The Outdoor Adventure Expo highlights Bellefonte’s beautiful and easily accessible natural assets, while showcasing regional vendors, nonprofits, and businesses that specialize in outdoors and recreation-related products.

This is a free-admission, regional event to promote nature-based tourism and commerce. This event also serves as a fundraiser for Downtown Bellefonte, Inc. to aid in its economic development initiatives.

The Expo will have adventure-based nonprofits, makers, and vendors. We also offer free workshops on topics like historic walking tours, kayaking, fly fishing, milkweed seed balls, cooking demonstrations, croquet games, beekeeping, backpacking, hammock camping and camping gear basics. In 2019, we had an estimated 1,500-2,000 attendees meet over 45 vendors and attend 12 workshops.

Stop by our Downtown Bellefonte Inc. booth and enter a raffle to win a Kayak package valued at $1200!
