Pennsylvania COVID Restrictions Prevent NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show

  

HARRISBURG, Pa. – To the great disappointment of tens of thousands of sportsmen and women, COVID-related governmental restrictions in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will prevent the 2021 Great American Outdoor Show from being held as scheduled on February 6-14, 2021.

Since the NRA created the Great American Outdoor Show in 2014, the show has been a much-anticipated annual event and a major boon for the state and local economy. More than 1,100 exhibitors and tens of thousands of people from Pennsylvania and indeed around the country and globe would converge on the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex each year contributing approximately $75 million to area businesses and state coffers, according to official local estimates.

The NRA will certainly miss the opportunity to celebrate America’s great firearm, hunting, fishing and outdoor heritage, but we look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the Great American Outdoor Show scheduled to be held February 5 – 13, 2022.

Check out some of the highlights from the 2020 Great American Outdoor Show 

... What Attendees are Saying ...

“I appreciate all of the seminars geared towards hunting and shooting techniques. As someone who has taken up hunting late in life without a mentor or family member to learn from, these are very helpful to keep me motivated to continue.”

“It was my first time to visit the show. I brought my brother and it was his first time also. We were amazed at how many people were there. We enjoyed the tremendous variety of vendors/offerings. Interacting with like minded individuals in a pleasant environment. We were able to get some things we were looking for at a reasonable price.”

“I took my four year old daughter and had no problem keeping her entertained at the event and still was able to visit the vendors I wanted to speak with. The diversity and arrangement through out the complex kept her always seeking the next exciting thing to see. I appreciated the kids area for her to play and the kid-friendly seminar with snakes was awesome. We even enjoyed eating lunch in the arena watching the hunting videos on the screen. We will continue coming next year for another father and daughter only day at the show. I also attend annually with my dad & brother so it was nice to experience it from another perspective this year and really enjoyed!”

“It was the biggest show I've experienced and had almost everything one could ask for, including seminars and manufacturer exhibits.”

“The variety in outfitters had a nice offering for any budget and hunt. The firearms and accessories portion had an awesome array of nice products that I’d probably never know about or get introduced to if I hadn’t explored. Lots of nice gear.”

“I enjoy the different seminars that deal with guns, deer hunting, and cooking wild game. I especially enjoy meeting the hunter/hosts of my favorite hunting shows.”

—2020 GAOS Attendee

“I enjoyed talking to representatives of all of the gun manufacturers and purchasing a few fishing items made by private companies that are not well known yet or available in big company stores. Seeing the taxidermy exhibit with the safari animals was great!”
