PARTNER GUIDE

Thank you for being a part of OutdoorFest Year 4! So psyched to get more people outdoors and connected with nature around NYC. Here are a few key q & a's to make the process easy for you. Any additional questions can be directed to sarah@outdoorfest.com

Q. What do I need to do to participate? 

1) Host an outdoorsy event anytime between June 4 and 12th.

2) Send at least 1x dedicated email + social media blast to your network about OutdoorFest to help share the love for all events

3) Hang up the OF community partner banner at your event

4) Get people outside! 

Q. How do I sign up?

Send sarah@outdoorfest.com an email including:

  • Name of event
  • Time and date of event
  • Description of event
  • Location and directions to event
  • Registration needs (example: shoe size) and price point
  • Your group's logo and description
  • An awesome high res photo

Need ideas? Here's our schedule from last year: http://www.outdoorfest.com/schedule2016

Q. Is there a cost to participate?

There is no upfront cost to participate. If you choose to charge for your event, there is a 10% commission charge.

Q. How does registration work?

We will use Eventbrite to manage the registrations. You will be sent the roster 48 hours before your event and then a check-in the day of with numbers. Payout will be done within 3 weeks of the completion of your event via check.

We will promote your event on our schedule, to press, and through our social media channels. Our goal is to connect people to YOU so you can show them what's available year round in/around NYC.

Q. How do we get pictures of our events / buzz in front of more people?

Our advice: Do something unique. We actively pitch media on the entire schedule so the more "interesting" + "unique" your activity, the more likely it will get picked up.  Here are some stories that have been picked up in the past: outdoorfest.com/press.

Q. In previous years, OutdoorFest has sent volunteers, is that happening this year?

Not automatically. If you're interested in a photographer / writer please contact Sarah and she'll work on sending one!

Q. Is there a partner party ?

YES! Either May 30 or May 31, details coming soon....

Q. I want a t-shirt

Come to the party!

Q. Anything else?

If you are a guide / trip leader and would like an extra opportunity to show off your upcoming trips, we're doing a "Find your guide" event on Wednesday June 8th at Paragon Sports. Sign up here.
