January 23, 2024

Three-day festival celebrates the great outdoors and camping season in Colorado and Washington.

SEATTLE (January 23, 2024 ) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/HEST, the designer of premium sleep products built to bring the comforts of home to the outdoors, welcomes all to join the brand, along with friends, family, and pets, to the third annual HESTIVAL April 26-28, 2024 at Big B’s Delicious Orchards in Hotchkiss, CO. Due to the event’s success over the last two years, HEST is excited to debut a Pacific Northwest venue in the fall in Darrington, WA – located at the foothills of the North Cascades, along the Sauk River and in close proximity to world-class mountain biking and hiking.

From glamping tents and premier camping sites, to RVs, truck campers, and overland rigs set against picturesque backdrops, there’s a place for every kind of camper at HESTIVAL.

HESTIVAL Colorado at Big B’s is an all-inclusive, family, and pet-friendly weekend event with unique camping experiences among the apple orchards, loads of activities, excursions, fireside chats, stargazing, and delicious food and drink. HESTIVAL-goers will have day trip options to mountain bike, hike, or kick back and explore the local orchards before the group reconvenes for a daily Big B’s Delicious Orchards Cider happy hour. HESTIVAL will host live music on both Friday and Saturday evenings, including a headliner performance on Saturday night which will be announced in February. Previous performers have been Rising Appalachia and The California Honeydrops.

“The community we are building at our HESTIVAL events inspires us to grow and nurture the concept beyond one location,” said Aaron Ambuske, founder of HEST. “The event attracts a very wholesome, altruistic, active, and respectful crowd who appreciates camping, recreating and enjoying music in a beautiful location. At the end of the day, that is what it is all about and we are just pleased to share this experience with others.”

In an industry that brings so much attention to the outdoor go-getters and adventure seekers, HEST brings attention to the importance of sleep. With intention for the health and wellness benefits of sleep, HESTIVAL will offer stargazing, free nap demos, and the chance to relax throughout the weekend.

HEST has commitment from brand partners including Kuhl, Pact Outdoors, Four Wheel Campers, Ombraz, Turtlebox, Ignik, and Bivouac Coffee and is currently welcoming a select number of remaining sponsor spots for brands to get involved in a meaningful way by hosting unique activations throughout the weekend.
