MountainFest 2016



March 19 | 12pm-5pm

FREE and Open to the Public!


MountainFest is the perfect way to get motivated and learn skills for year round mountain adventures. Come by and learn about everything the Club has to offer!

Experience free outdoor skills clinics, climbing in the Bouldering Bus, tours of the American Mountaineering Museum and open climbing on our indoor rock wall! The highlight of the afternoon will be an expo featuring CMC’s popular hiking, mountaineering, fly fishing, and camping schools; our conservation program; adventure travel trips; the Youth Education Program and much more.

We’ve also teamed up with Mountain Equipment Recyclers this year, so bring your gently used outdoor gear to donate or consign and up to 50% of the profit of your item goes back to the CMC!

Don't let your friends, family, neighbors or co-workers miss this opportunity to learn all about the CMC -- your gateway to the outdoors! And the best part? It's FREE!

Plus, enjoy your first beer FREE provided by Upslope Brewing Company!
