The show features nearly 1,000 exhibitors ranging from shooting manufacturers to outfitters to fishing boats and RVs, and archery to art covering 650,000 square feet of exhibit hall space. Not to mention a jam-packed schedule including live music, speaking events, archery competitions, celebrity appearances, seminars, demos and much more. Find more details about this year's show here.
When you're in town for the Great American Outdoor Show, extend your stay and explore the outdoors in Cumberland Valley. During February, you can enjoy ice fishing, hunting, and snowmobiling at our nearby state game lands and parks. You can also explore the Appalachian Trail, a portion of which runs through Cumberland Valley and can be hiked throughout the year.
In nearby Carlisle, stop at Earth Artisan & Outfitter. In addition to the goods & gear for home, garden and trail, this small shop specializes in earth-based and nature-inspired fine art & photography.
After a day exploring the expansive Great American Outdoor Show, head to nearby restaurants, pubs, and breweries to relax for an evening of great food and drinks.
