Red Wing, MN —Join in Vasque’s trail festivities at Summer OR and celebrate the debut of the new, less-is-more trail runner, the Pendulum, and the updated lighter, faster and more breathable Breeze 2.0 GTX boot. Kicking off Day 1 of the show in style, Vasque is bringing the party to their booth with The Infamous Stringdusters, cold beers in a reusable boot cup and prize giveaways.
Conjure up memories of campfire jam sessions after long days on the trail, as the Infamous Stringdusters bring the sweet authentic sounds of Charlottesville, VA to the Outdoor Retailer Show. In addition to the band, meet Vasque ultra-runner, Duncan Callahan, who will be on hand to share his favorite aspects of the Pendulum and discuss his most recent trip to Japan to race in the Ultra Trail du Mt. Fuji.
The revelry kicks off at 5pm on Thursday, when the music festival darlings, The Infamous Stringdusters, begin their rare acoustic show and the beer starts flowing.
“We are thrilled to bring the award winning, foot stomping sounds and fun experience of The Infamous Stringdusters to the show floor,” says Chris Miller, Director of Sales, Vasque. “We’ll have great music, friends, giveaways and refreshments–the only thing missing is a campfire!”
To top it all off, a $5 donation to the Conservation Alliance gets you a refillable Boot Cup to use throughout the show and the chance to win multiple prizes such as: a pair of Breeze 2.0’s, a trail running package that includes the Pendulums, a 30-minute training session with Callahan and an UltrAspire Hydration System, or a pair of tickets to The Festy Experience put on by The Infamous Stringdusters in Virginia. Just check the bottom of your beer cup to see if you are a winner!
Grab your boots and get ready to dance the happy hour away at booth 12001!
