Green Top Outdoor Expo

This FREE, family-friendly event features 225 sporting life vendors, product demos, and exhibits. Keeping with a Fall Festival feel, there are tons of great food options, live music, and a fun-filled Kid Zone but what makes our show different is the rare one-to-one opportunity to meet and talk with industry experts and celebrities.

Company President & CEO Blaine Altaffer said, “For me, the Expo is all about what it offers the attendees. It brings together the right brands and new technologies and wraps it all in expertise and special offers. Consumers benefit from this type of experience-based retail that puts the products in their hands to help make their buying decisions.”

We’re celebrating our 75th Anniversary this year, so we are bringing out the big-guns (pun intended) to deliver valuable raffle prizes, national outdoor brand personalities, deep discounts, and specialty items. This year promises to be our best yet!

So, mark your calendar and bring the whole family out for FREE outdoor fun! See you there!
