Susquehanna Greenway Outdoor Expo To Be Held June 4 At Shikellamy State Park, Northumberland County

Love the outdoors? Looking for the gear, resources, and information to help you on your next adventure? 

The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership is excited to announce the Susquehanna Greenway Outdoor Expo-- an opportunity that showcases the recreational side of the outdoors in Pennsylvania with hiking, biking, paddling, climbing, backpacking, fishing, and more!

The Susquehanna Greenway runs through the heart of Pennsylvania. It is a corridor of parks, trails, and communities, just steps away from the Susquehanna River and a plethora of outdoor activities. 

The Susquehanna Greenway Outdoor Expo not only celebrates this statewide landscape, but also the network of vendors, nonprofits, educators, and businesses that specialize in the outdoor and recreation-related products in Pennsylvania. 

Free and open to the public, the Susquehanna Greenway Outdoor Expo will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2022, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at Shikellamy State Park Marina in Northumberland County..  

Attendees will have access to 50 booths featuring gear, outfitters, outdoor educators, non-profits, visitor bureaus, heritage areas, conservation landscapes, and more.  

There will also be an opportunity to attend free clinics—from learning climbing knots to paddling lessons—and attend demonstrations on various outdoor topics like diving the Susquehanna, lumber history on the river, and a live raptor show.  

If that’s not enough, the venue will also feature food trucks and musical performances throughout the day—including a very special log raft demonstration by local performer and educator Van Wagner. 

Stop by the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership booth and enter a raffle to win a kayak package valued at $679, plus an REI backpack, and other great prizes from Patagonia.
