Here’s what makes Outdoor City USA different than other sports festivals. If you love to ride, run, climb or hike, there’s great stuff waiting for you here, no matter what your age or proficiency level.

Beginners to professional athletes, kids to octogenarians. Competitive, enthusiast, just-for- fun; solo, group, family, we built the Outdoor City for you. We even made it dog-friendly, both in our huge dog park and on-leash everywhere else.

The Big Idea here is not just cool stuff to see (although there’s plenty of that, from the events themselves to hand-on skills clinics to the Expo, plus local foods, and beverages from our friends at 10 Barrel Brewing and selected Orgon wineries). But there’s also great stuff everyone to do here…and all of it every bit as challenging as you want to make it.
