The following is a listing of upcoming outdoor shows in the Mid-Atlantic area. Outdoor shows are educational and one of the best ways for hands-on experience with the latest sporting equipment as well as a great opportunity locate and meet outfitters for your next adventure.
Plan a day trip to one of the many outdoor expositions found locally and within a few hours of Frederick. I have included contact information for each show, and I encourage readers to visit websites of interest for show coupons, program brochures, senior and youth admission prices, parking information, directions, etc. Be sure to consider any current COVID mandates at the venues you plan to visit.
