The holidays are just around the corner, bringing with them the spirit of family and tradition, and the practice of counting blessings and making plans for the new year. So, gather your family and friends and make plans to celebrate our hunting and fishing traditions and the joys of the outdoor lifestyle when the Great American Outdoor Show returns in less than three months!
Each February, the NRA brings together the best gear, outfitters and experts in hunting, fishing, archery, the shooting sports, outdoor recreation and beyond for a nine-day extravaganza at the historic Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pa. The 2019 show, scheduled for Feb. 2-10, continues the annual tradition.
Tickets are on sale now—and what could be a better stocking stuffer than admission to the world's largest consumer outdoor show? That means the opportunity to explore nine halls packed with more than 1,100 exhibitors and a million outdoor and shooting-related products from firearms and accessories to hunting and archery equipment, fishing tackle, boats, ATVs and RVs.
With more than 400 outfitters, guides and boat captains from around the world, outdoor celebrities, live demos, seminars and events tailored to every interest, and interactive experiences like the 3D Bowhunter Challenge, Spot Shoot and 'try before you buy' shooting lanes, there's something for all outdoorsmen and women at the show. Not to mention the Hawg Tank with live fishing demonstrations, DockDogs 'Big Air' jumping competitions, an NRA Country concert featuring some of the hottest new artists and a Friends of NRA banquet, live auction and Wall of Guns.
And the fun doesn't stop there. We've got activities for the whole family! Kids won't want to miss the Eddie Eagle Kid's Zone, Kids Trout Pond and Casting Contest, NRA Air Gun Range and more.
Regular adult admission is only $14, but with more than 650,000 square feet of exhibit space and a jam-packed schedule, one day just won’t be enough! Purchase a two-day pass for $24 and ensure you don't miss an inch or a moment of the show. Special rates also apply for kids, seniors and groups. Children five and under and guests who purchase or renew their NRA Membership at the show receive free admission!
