Throughout the year we host a variety of events for Pittsburgh’s outdoor community. From larger public events like the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour to small exclusive events just for our Members or Trip Leaders, our events bring the spirit of outdoor adventure and community to Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Annual Events

Annual Volunteer Meeting

In January of each year all current and prospective Venture Outdoors volunteers gather together for our Annual Volunteer Meeting. The meeting includes presentations on Venture Outdoors, our plans for the upcoming year, and a chance to meet and socialize with other volunteers.

To get us motivated for a summer filled with adventure, every spring we bring The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour to Pittsburgh. This event features the year’s best mountain sport, culture, and environmental films, letting you experience the thrill and challenges of outdoor adventures that inspire us all.
