Podcast: Gear Fest Pittsburgh- Christine Iksic & Chris Kaminski

Christine Iksic and Chris Kaminski are Pittsburgh natives and the founding partners of Gear Fest Pittsburgh and 3 Rivers Outdoor Company (a local, independent specialty outdoor retailer planning to open in Lawrenceville in Spring 2018).  The inaugural Gear Fest Pittsburgh will be held on April 23, 2017 at the Ace Hotel in East Liberty from noon to 5pm (doors open for sellers to register gear at 11am).  The event will feature outdoor gear sales, live music and craft beer from four local brewers as well as prizes from outdoor vendors and organizations.  There is no admission charge to attend Gear Fest; for all items sold at the event, sellers will receive 80% of the sales price. One percent of all sales at Gear Fest will be donated to First Waves (See link below).  For more information on Gear Fest, including where and when sellers can drop off gear to be sold and pre-Gear Fest events, go to:
