Join WABA and outdoor enthusiasts throughout the region to celebrate the grand opening of the region’s new REI Flagship Store!

The packed line-up is a nonstop three-day festival with national and local artists, local marching bands, workshops, bike valet, beer gardens, s’mores, screen printing, climbing walls, and more!

Plus, you can help REI decide how to share a $100,000 contribution among 5 regionally focused outdoor non‑profits and WABA is one of them! It’s up to you where the dollars go. Everyone gets a vote, free breakfast and coffee each morning, and the first 500 people through the store’s doors each day Oct. 21-23 receive a custom REI DC CamelBak water bottle with an REI promo card inside.

Check out the locations and times for the live music and events here.


The REI DC Flaghip store is located at 201 M Street NE, Washington, DC 20002.
Store hours are Friday & Saturday 10am – 9pm, Sunday 11am – 7pm.
