About the Northeast Fishing & Hunting Show

Show Overview

Since 1997, the Northeast Fishing & Hunting Show has been the premier destination for outdoors enthusiasts! Our show offers an extensive lineup of exhibitors, experts, seminars, demonstrations, competitions and more. Our dates are strategically timed to be just before the opening of the Spring fishing & hunting seasons and we’re proud to call the Connecticut Convention Center home!

For Attendees

We welcome all Northeast area fishermen, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to come to the show. We encourage you to bring your families along as there are plenty of things to do for all ages! Below are some quick links to helpful show information.

For Exhibitors

Steeped in tradition since 1997, our show is the ONLY proven show in Connecticut that consistently draws more than 12,000 outdoor enthusiasts. Our extensive marketing campaign ensures that we’ll continue to attract showgoers at consistently high levels! We’d love to learn more about you and your product / service. If you’d like to learn more about becoming an exhibitor at the show, visit our Interested in Exhibiting page.

Veterans’ Appreciation Day

As a sincere thank you to those who have / are serving our country, we designate the Saturday of our show as Veterans’ Appreciation Day! The first 200 U.S. veterans or active military in line will get free admission with a valid military or veteran association-issued ID.
