Friends of GGBY

It takes a lot to make a gathering like GGBY happen. Dozens of people put in a ton of work to minimize environmental impact while keeping the GGBY vibe and keeping the stoke high.

This year, we reached out to local companies and outdoor brands to bring something extra to GGBY. It’s not about sponsorship money or swag, but about building a bigger community.

Having local companies engaged in GGBY as supporters or sponsors also helps down the road if we have access issues to deal with. The local companies are more likely to support us as a community when we need it if we support them now.

This year, a bunch of local companies like Red River Adventures, Wild SOL Retreats, Moab Garage Co, Moab Diner, and ZAX Restaurant are helping out by loaning us supplies (toilets and tables and tents!), providing food for our volunteers (pizza delivered to the Fruit Bowl?!), and offering discounts to GGBY full-ticket attendees.

GGBY is an incredible gathering, vivid and vibrant and inspiring in its very existence. Outdoor brands are increasingly interested in the slackline community want to be involved in GGBY. Brands like Big Agnes, Xero Shoes, and Joshua Tree Skincare are providing raffle items and support items for our volunteers this year (like a giant bottle of sunscreen!).

We know that many in the community are wary of sponsorship for a gathering like GGBY. That’s why we’re careful with the arrangements we’re making and we’ll be transparent about all of the support we get.

This year, our supporters and sponsors are primarily providing loaned items, donated food, and raffle items. In the future, perhaps they will help us offset our expenses so that we can lower the ticket price.
