On March 24-26, 2017, the Mat-Su Outdoorsman Show will again bring in the spring for all Alaskans. This first outdoor show of the season is just what we need to start our spring-summer-fall planning in earnest. Rafting trips, guided fishing charters, outdoor gear and large, outdoor toys will all be available at the show. And the large toys will again be displayed indoors for your convenience.
And don’t forget the tremendous amount of free information available at the show. Experts and average outdoors people alike often provide those invaluable bits of knowledge that mean the difference between fishing and catching, or between an average trip and an extraordinary experience. This aspect of outdoor shows is sometimes overlooked by the average attendee. When you attend this show, listen for those places, times and gear types that will make these coming seasons exceptional - even by Alaska standards.
Happening at the Curtis Menard Memorial Sports Complex on Clapp Road, admission to the show will still be free for kids 12 and under, all military personnel and their dependants. Food is always plentiful, ready and hot, parking will be free and as always there will be dozens of outdoor-related seminars.
The show date is still the very first spring outdoor show in Alaska, one week prior to the Anchorage show. So mark on your 2017 calendars the dates of March 24th-26th so you don’t miss the 12th Annual Mat-Su Outdoorsman Show. For vendors who want to participate in the show, a few booths and bulk spaces are still available, so sign up today and be part of the largest outdoor trade show in the Valley. See you there!
