#OutdoorFest16 Instagram Contest Starts today

Today we announce the official festival giveaway for OutdoorFest 2016! This year's prize will last far beyond the fest because it's all gear you need to get out including a bike, a sleeping system, and an outdoor ready watch. The gear package is a collection of the best from our sponsors Clif Bar, Therm-a-Rest, and Victorinox Swiss Army.

Entering the contest is easy: all you have to do is share your photos of adventure in and around NYC on Instagram with tags #outdoorfest16 #feedyouradventure. Full details and rules here.

We'll pick our favorite three photos on June 19th at the Outdoor Recreation Expo & Final Party. We'll also be giving away free party tickets randomly to entrants throughout the contest period - so go ahead and share!
