Due to the ongoing and evolving COVID-19 situation, we are postponing the 2020 Out Living It Festival (OLIF) until further notice. This decision was guided by our board of directors, medical advisory board, COVID Task Force, and representatives from national, state and local health departments. We are currently working to reschedule the event for 2021, where all fundraising, ticket purchases, and sponsorships will be honored. If you prefer not to transfer your ticket, First Descents is happy to offer a full refund on your purchase. In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates regarding the Out Living It Festival.

There will be rafting, mountain biking, kayaking, rock climbing, live music, campfires, camping, and more! All activities will be made accessible and adaptive so make plans to join us for the ultimate adventure weekend!
