2014 Summer KEENfest in Salt Lake City

The 2014 summer Outdoor Retailer trade show is winding down and the group of us from KEEN will soon be heading back to Portland, Oregon. While the majority of the show takes place inside the Salt Palace Convention Center, we also enjoyed the sunny weather across the street at KEENfest, a three-day party to thank the outdoor industry and to provide a spot for attendees to take a break, charge their phones, grab some food and meet a couple of our Ambassadors. Here were some of the highlights from the past three days:

Ambassador Drew Brophy spent all three days painting a “Flower of Life” mural.

Repurposed backpacks made from old paraglider materials were sold to benefit the Cloudbase Foundation.

Creativity was in abundance at the UNEEK coloring wall. Which colors would you have picked?
