Event description


OutdoorFest is back for 2017 and we're kicking it off by taking over 75 acres of green space in Staten Island (check out our favorite parts of the Greenbelt here) to host the summer's best campout.

Campout under the stars || 5K Night Trail Race by CLIF || LIVE SHOW: Bandits on the Run || Beer by Sierra Nevada || Survival Skills || Stargazing (with real telescopes & astronomers!)

No car? No problem. Choose the VIP Ticket for a spot in our shuttle or a 24 hour ReachNow car rental. Once you register you can also head to our FB Group to connect with others you can carpool with.

Get excited for:

3:00PM Campgrounds open - set up your tent/campsite, frisbee, hiking, hanging out, set up your hammock etc.

Guided Hike and Demo Boots by Lowa

BYOsocks and lace up your (for a few hours) new hiking boots as we follow a 5 mile guided hike through the Staten Island Greenbelt. Make sure to tag your photo #outdoorfest17 and #lowaboots to be entered to win a pair of your own Lowa Innox Evo Lo trail shoes.

Vinyasa Yoga by Pop Up Yoga NYC

Our favorite yoga team is back with more "pop up" yoga in fun places around the city. We'll spread out on the beautiful lawn at Camp Kaufman for an hour long class. Bring your own mat and sunscreen.

Outdoor Academy with Destination Backcountry Adventures

Learn everything you need to know for your next backcountry outing. Every hour, the academy will teach different skills from map & compass basics to survival skills and fire building to backcountry cooking.


  • Storytelling Workshop
  • Slacklining basics class
  • Mi Casa will be back grilling up traditional latin cuisine with a Colombian influence
  • And more to come...

8:00PM Our 3rd annual 5K Night Trail Race by CLIF begins.

The course is two 2.5k laps meaning you'll be able to use the dusk light to get your feet accustomed to the trails for the first lap. The second lap brings you through the trails in darkness and a headlamp is 100% required. Race registration included.

9:30PM Concert at the stage in the woods: sip some cold brews from Sierra Nevada and dance to Bandits on the Run, a Brooklyn based trio known for inflicting their upbeat brand of musical mischief on countless unsuspecting citizens.

And a huge thanks to our sponsors:

Do I have to be 21 to participate?
