Join us for a lively gathering of celebration and engagement!

Engage in the challenges and opportunities facing our outdoor spaces with our Colorado Governor Ca...ndidates Forum, moderated by the Colorado Springs Business Journal’s Editor, Bryan Grossman. Hear about the issues before us and the different candidates' perspectives so you head to the polls informed. Our community leaders will frame and pose questions focused on the outdoors as a key economic driver and significant factor in our community’s health and well-being. Visit with candidates following the forum to ask your own burning questions and learn more about their campaigns!

Celebrate our outdoor community and learn the many opportunities available to you through the Outdoor Community Expo, showcasing the Pikes Peak region’s amazing outdoor businesses, nonprofits, and land management entities. Consider how you can volunteer and get involved in protecting our outdoor assets and supporting ongoing community efforts!
