It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like, a celebration of sweet, flavorful, dehydrated meats.

Continuing their 100 days of recess, our friends over at REI had a dream, a dream of jerky. A dream where jerky could bring people together in the real world. One might even say it would bring people United Outside.

We love jerky at BYT. Our benefits packages are basically just lifetime supplies of craft jerky. So when we heard our friends at REI were throwing a festival dedicated to the delectable dried meat, we simply couldn’t refuse.

We’ve brought together some of the best jerky artisans – and similarly rustic foodstuffs makers – both locally and nationally for your sampling delight. Wait, “sampling”? Yes, all of the vendors will be offering samples for you to treat your meat-craving (or not – there’s vegan jerky too!) little taste buds.
