Join fellow hunters at the NRA Great American Outdoor Show, the world’s largest outdoor show, from Feb. 4-12. This nine-day event in Harrisburg, Pa., celebrates the hunting, fishing and outdoor traditions observed by millions of Americans.

"There is truly no better place to be this time of the year but with NRA members and like-minded friends in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania,” said Joe DeBergalis, executive director of NRA General Operations.

“Over the next nine days, hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts will converge on the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex for a celebration of our cherished hunting and outdoor heritage. With more than 1,000 vendors, there is no other consumer trade show that comes close to the size and scope of the Great American Outdoor Show!”

The nine-day show features more than 1,000 exhibitors including firearm and ammo manufacturers, archery manufacturers, more than 400 outfitters and boat captains from around the world, boats, RVs, camping gear and art covering 650,000 square feet in nine separate halls.
