Allegheny Sport and Outdoor is a new community + sport + art building project by Chas Wagner. It is an attempt to bring our disparate, alienated, fragmented selves together through a quarterly publication, an annual festival, a regional membership club and other in-person celebrations, gatherings and competitions.

With Pittsburgh as our home base, our goal is to convene individuals, teams and community groups across Western PA, Eastern Ohio, Northern West Virginia, Western New York and Western Maryland.

Struggling to find a place where athletics, art, literature, ecology, philosophy, publishing and even sauna bathing can flow together; ASO is that hub. A wild dream to be a “club of clubs” to have all these multiplicities and funky contradictions somehow mesh harmoniously with one another.
