About Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience

The Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience presented by Huffy is a production of Five Rivers MetroParks to help connect you to nature by introducing visitors to the vibrant outdoor adventure lifestyle and culture. 

The Midwest’s premier outdoor adventure festival, which began in 2005, now attracts over 20,000 people each October to Dayton, Ohio, “The Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest!” where you can camp, connect, compete, and experience dozens of outdoor activities.

FREE and family friendly including the dog!



For All Ages

The Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience is all about connecting you to the outdoors by introducing you to new activities to experience.  Beyond the fun of the food, music, and camping is a plethora of opportunities to get you on the water, bike, slackline, climbing wall, and more.  Just try an activity for the first time or sign up for a competition, there is something for everyone…even the dog!

Used Gear

Sell your used gear to help someone else get into a new activity through the consignment sale.

Classes and Workshops

Pick up some tips and trick in the Outdoor School.

Sit Back & Relax

Enjoy Live Music

Groove to live music throughout the festival as you hang with thousands of your newest friends listening to music presented by WYSO.  Relax in between paddling or climbing by lounging on the lawn or dance the night away with Great Lakes and Fifty West.
