Get ready for the largest hands-on outdoor expo in Arizona


PHOENIX -- The Arizona Game and Fish Department Outdoor Expo is all set for Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29, at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix.

Admission and parking are free!

Last year’s Expo and Youth Day drew a total of 48,000 attendees, the highest three-day total in the event’s history.

Once again, there will be plenty of hands-on fun for all ages. Check out the huge kids fishing tanks and take home a free photo. See all sorts of live wildlife. Learn target archery and try other shooting sports in a safe, supervised, controlled environment on the range.

Get a feel for specialty shooting disciplines like clay target, cowboy action, practical pistol, black powder, and air gun. Check out the many firearms manufacturers.

Don’t miss the always popular cowboy mounted shooting competition. See OHV and ATV exhibits. Give kayaking a try at the “Lake Paddlemore” kayaking tank (new last year). Hike a field course and learn cool camping tips. Learn about boating and how to stay safe on the water. Talk to experts about Arizona’s raptors, community fishing, quail hunting, Arizona’s reptiles, game calling, optics, wildlife tracking research, and more. Visit with more than 150 exhibitors, including outdoor recreation and conservation groups, government agencies, and commercial vendors of outdoor products and services.

Concessionaires will have food and beverages available for purchase, and many accept only cash -- ATMs will be on site.  There is a nominal charge for ammunition at some of the target shooting venues.

Expo hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The Outdoor Expo is easy to find, located on Carefree Highway, about 1/2 mile west of I-17 in Phoenix.

Title sponsor of this year’s Outdoor Expo is Shikar Safari Club International. Gold sponsors are Cabela’s and Arizona State Credit Union. Silver sponsors are Bass Pro Shops, Iron City Polaris, Weatherby Foundation International, and the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Foundation. Bronze sponsors are Smith & Wesson and A to Z Equipment Rentals and Sales.

About AZGFD and the Outdoor Expo

Expo Objective

To inform, educate, train and introduce the public through activities, demonstrations and exhibits of hunting, fishing, recreational shooting, archery, wildlife watching, off-highway vehicle and watercraft recreation, wildlife conservation, wildlife education, camping, trapping and other related outdoor activities that are consistent with the Department’s mission, policies and positions.

AZGFD

The Arizona Game and Fish Department manages for all wildlife in Arizona but does not receive any Arizona tax dollars.

The Department is run on a user-pay, user-benefit business model, with funding coming primarily from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses, tags, stamps, a portion of federal excise taxes on certain hunting and fishing equipment, and a few other sources such as watercraft licensing / registration fees, OHV decal fees, and the Heritage Fund (a portion of Arizona Lottery ticket sales).

No Arizona tax dollars are used in conducting the Outdoor Expo
