Pennsylvania Covid-19 Restrictions Prevent NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show For 2021

To the great disappointment of tens of thousands of sportsmen and women, Covid-19-related governmental restrictions in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will prevent the 2021 Great American Outdoor Show from being held as scheduled on Feb. 6-14, 2021, in Harrisburg, Penn.

Since the NRA created the Great American Outdoor Show in 2014, it has been a much-anticipated annual event and a major boon for the state and local economy. More than 1,100 exhibitors and tens of thousands of people from Pennsylvania and around the country and globe would converge on the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex each year—contributing approximately $75 million to area businesses and state coffers, according to official local estimates.

The NRA will certainly miss the opportunity to celebrate America’s great firearm, hunting, fishing and outdoor heritage, but we look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the Great American Outdoor Show scheduled to be held Feb. 5–13, 2022.
