Outdoor Project is excited to announce that our Block Party Festival series is coming to Charleston on Saturday, October 20, 2018, from 12 to 9 p.m. The event will be hosted at Tradesman Brewing Co., 1647 King Street Extension. This block party festival will benefit Lowcountry Land Trust, a local conservation organization that focuses on protecting ecologically, agriculturally, and historically significant Lowcountry lands and the way of life they make possible. Funds will be raised to support this incredible work through the sale of customized insulated Stanley pints, vendor support, and attendee donations, and a percentage of proceeds from beer sales will be donated by Tradesman Brewing,
Outdoor Project’s Block Party Festival will fill your day with outdoor adventure inspiration, gear demos, yoga, giveaways, live music, games, food trucks, and beer. This event is for all ages, is open to furry friends, and is FREE! If you will be attending with your dog, please bring your shot records and be prepared to fill out a waiver at the door.

Along with supporting local nonprofits and organizations, KEEN will be on-site to share their Better Takes Action campaign and empower fans through KEEN's mobile action center. KEEN's on-site activation promotes voter registration, educates participants about causes related to the environment and our public lands, and encourages people to take action by calling their local elected officials to express their opinions.
Lowcountry Land Trust is a nonprofit that celebrates the profound relationship between people and place by conserving land and water in 17 counties throughout the Lowcountry. For more information about Lowcountry Land Trust and the mission of the organization, visit LowcountryLandTrust.org.
Looking for something fun to do the morning of the 20th before heading to the Outdoor Project Block Party Festival at Tradesman Brewing Co.? Join the Charleston Block Party Festival beneficiary, Lowcountry Land Trust, in their Beach Sweep cleanup event at Sullivan's Island from 9am-12pm.
Thanks to Wildish, any volunteers who do the cleanup and stop by the Outdoor Project booth at the Block Party Festival will receive a FREE Outdoor Project bandana!

In times like these, when our air, water, climate, and public lands are under constant attack, we’re continuing our mission of taking action with renewed gusto—with a new campaign to activate KEEN employees and our fans.
Because … Better Takes Action.
“From the inception of this campaign, we set out with a simple goal: to inspire a call to action for our fans, our community, and our employees to engage their civic voice to protect open spaces and drive positive outcomes,” says Tyler LaMotte, Chief Marketing Officer at KEEN. “As a brand dedicated to making leading products for our fans to experience life outside, the aim is that together we can take action today for a better tomorrow.”
Whether it’s helping create a better world for future generations or enjoying better adventures today with our families, the only way to make anything better is to do something about it.
