The NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show, the world’s largest outdoor show, will take place at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, Feb. 4 to 12. The annual celebration of outdoor traditions will feature more than 1,000 exhibitors on 650,000 sq.-ft. of exhibit space. Attendees will be able to meet firearm and shooting-sport manufacturers, outfitters, boat and RV dealers, hunting and fishing retailers, and much more.

In addition, two of the event’s most popular attractions are returning—The NRA Foundation’s Friends of NRA Banquet and Wall of Guns. On Thursday, Feb. 9, The Friends of NRA Banquet will take place in the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex’s PA Preferred Ballroom. The evening of entertainment begins when doors opening at 5 p.m., and festivities include the chance to win custom firearms, tailored hunts and unique merchandise while enjoying dinner with other Second Amendment supporters. Money raised during the banquet will help fund the organization’s national, state and regional programs in support of our shooting heritage. Numerous table and sponsorship packages are available for purchase, individual tickets are $65 and couple tickets are $120.

The ever-popular Wall of Guns, also hosted by The Friends of the NRA, is making its return this year, thanks to official sponsor Weatherby. It can be found at booth 39 in the complex’s main hallway and will be running each day of the show. Tickets are $10 each. A winner is drawn for every 100 tickets sold and they get to select a firearm from more than 40 different makes and models available. There are a number of different ticket packages, ranging from $10 to $1,000, some of which include a limited-edition Wall of Guns t-shirt, donated by Nine Line Apparel. All proceeds from the Wall of Guns will benefit The NRA Foundation, the country’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports.
