Come on out on Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1, for the FREE Arizona Game and Fish Department Outdoor Expo, held on the 1,600-acre grounds of the world-renowned Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix.
Arizona’s largest hands-on outdoor expo offers loads of fun activities, exhibits and educational presentations for the entire family:
Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 1.
Best of all, admission and parking are free! You might want to bring a little cash for food and beverages, or for the nominal ammunition charge at some of the shooting venues (for those who want to try out firearms on the range), or if you wish to purchase outdoor products from the variety of vendors who will be exhibiting at the Outdoor Expo.
Gold sponsors of the Arizona Game and Fish Department Outdoor Expo are Cabela’s and Airpark Dodge/Ram/Chrysler/Jeep.
The Ben Avery Shooting Facility is located at 4044 W. Black Canyon Blvd. in Phoenix (located on Carefree Highway, about 1/2 mile west of I-17 – just follow the signs).
The Arizona Game and Fish Department manages for all wildlife in Arizona but does not receive any Arizona tax dollars. The Department is run on a user-pay, user-benefit business model, with funding coming primarily from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses/tags/stamps, a portion of federal excise taxes on certain hunting and fishing equipment, and a few other sources such as watercraft licensing/registration fees, OHV Decal fees, and the Heritage Fund (a portion of Arizona Lottery ticket sales). No Arizona tax dollars are used in conducting the Outdoor Expo.
