The region's premier outdoor adventure festival returns to Dayton this Fall - Enjoy outdoor activities, live entertainment, competitions and much more.
Explore the active side of Dayton with the return of the Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience, a Five Rivers MetroParks event featuring two days of outdoor adventure that celebrates Dayton as the Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest.
The Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience, presented by Huffy had been paused for the past two years due to COVID-19. Typically, more than 25,000 festivalgoers attend to enjoy numerous outdoor activities, live entertainment, competitions and more.
“We’re incredibly happy to bring back the Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience this year,” said Angela York, MetroParks special events coordinator. “During the pandemic, so many people found safe ways to stay active and work on their wellbeing. We want to help people keep that connection going by celebrating health, happiness and adventure in the great outdoors.”
Festivalgoers of all ages and skill levels can try new outdoor activities, including climbing, mountain biking, disc golf, fishing, slacklining, paddling (flat and whitewater), and cycling.
Crowd favorites include demos by freestyle kayakers, stand up paddleboarders, BMX riders and more.
The festival is held at Eastwood MetroPark (park side), 1385 Harshman Rd. in Dayton, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2. Admission and parking are free.
