After months of construction, a hundred outdoor events, and many beers at Wunder Garten, D.C.’s very own REI flagship store is here! Thousands of REI fans lined up each morning all weekend for door prizes, coffee, kazoos and more, and had a shopping after-party at Storey Park and Wunder Garten with music, DC Brau & Atlas, pop-up vendors, foodtrucks, giveaways, rock climbing, s’mores and more. Performances included Team Familiar, The Rondo Rigs, Ballou Marching Band, Banana Express, Dupont Brass Band, DJ Biz Markie, Ampersand String Band, Yellow Dubmarine, Little Bacon Bear, Batala, Jonny Grave, and so many more. It was beautiful and fun and everything we could have hoped for. Thanks to the amazing REI crew and our event partners Lead Dog for all the good vibes. Enjoy the photos, there are a million of them (and we have more here).
