Welcome to GEAR Up!

We’re excited to invite you to the second year of the GEAR Up Expo April 26–27 at the Comcast Arena in Everett! GEAR’s inaugural event in June 2013 was an instant success and this year is shaping up to be bigger and better.

We’ve moved the show to April. This timing is perfect for people looking to the outdoors for relaxation, fitness and just plain fun. We’ll have plenty of the same outdoors exhibits you loved last year with the newest gear and insights to help you make the most of the mountains and waterways of the Pacific Northwest.

We’ll also have a ton of great giveaways through a passport partnership with our exhibitors.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the new Everett recreational boat area this year. If you like being on the water, make sure you swing by. It’s going to be a blast.

Don’t forget to attend Helen Thayer’s keynote presentation at 1:30 p.m. Saturday of the show. This Snohomish county resident is a well-renowned adventure pioneer!

See you on the climbing wall!
