Great American Outdoor Show

The 2024 NRA Great American Outdoor Show, which returns to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pa., February 3-11. Each year at GAOS, we celebrate the hunting, fishing and outdoor traditions treasured by millions of Americans and their families. There is no other show in the world of this size and scope.

Since taking over the world’s largest outdoor show more than a decade ago, GAOS has become one of the NRA’s best-loved events. More than 200,000 people made the trip to Dauphin County for GAOS in 2023—the exhibit halls were packed with families and friends celebrating our shared values and way of life. At GAOS, attendees can interact with industry insiders and like-minded individuals, along with checking out the numerous products
on display.

Exhibitors at GAOS demonstrate products that drive the way we enjoy the outdoors. Last year, more than 1,000 exhibitors covered 650,000 square-feet to present the latest and greatest in outdoor products, gear and technologies, along with providing the opportunity for attendees to book once-in-a-lifetime hunts and fishing trips in America and abroad. As a dedicated consumer show, GAOS is a great place for companies to connect with their core audiences and vice versa.

GAOS is a destination event for the whole family. It’s the only place where in one day you can compete for bragging rights at the 3D Bowhunter Challenge and then observe canine acrobatics in action at the Dock Dogs big-air pool. Youngsters can head to the Kid’s Trout Pond for some angling action and visit the Eddie Eagle Kid’s Zone for crafts, games and face painting. This year’s schedule includes seminars and demonstrations for hunting, fishing, trapping, self-defense tactics and wild-game cooking. Plus, no visit to GAOS is complete without buying a ticket for a chance to win a firearm at the famous NRA Wall of Guns.

The second weekend of the show includes several marquee events. Join us on Thursday, Feb. 8, at the Friends of NRA Banquet for a chance to win exclusive guns, gear, décor and collectibles—all while ensuring the future of American freedom and the right to bear arms. New to the GAOS schedule this year is the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, to be held on Friday, Feb. 9. At this forum, we will hear from elected officials and political candidates about what is at stake in the 2024 elections for hunting, fishing and outdoor recreational activities. And you won’t want to miss an unforgettable night of music on Saturday, Feb. 10, at the 9th Annual NRA Country Concert headlined by Hershey, Pa., native and country superstar Warren Zeiders.

Act fast and buy your tickets today for the 2024 Great American Outdoor Show. Tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for children, with two-day passes discounted to $26. Admission is free with the purchase of an NRA membership. Learn more at greatamericanoutdoorshow.org.
