It’s that time of year again! This weekend, Nantahala Outdoor Center will host their annual Guest Appreciation Festival featuring tons of fun activities, great deals on new and used gear, arts and crafts, lots of great bands and of course, the famous Gear Swap.
If you have never been to GAF, as it is affectionately called, you are in for a treat! Nowhere will you find an outdoor gear sale like this! You can find amazing deals on this year’s outdoor gear and apparel at the Outfitter’s store. Or, you can stroll on over to the Used Gear Marketplace which is like a yard sale – but with kayaks, backpacks, camping equipment and outdoor clothing. Got gear you want to trade for something else? Bring it on over to the Gear Swap area and see what you can exchange it for! And that’s just the shopping – there are tons of fun activities going on throughout the weekend, as well.
The fun starts on Friday morning at 10a.m. and goes through Sunday afternoon. For more information about NOC’s Guest Appreciation Festival and for a schedule of events, click here.
