​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​America's Premier Expo for Hunters, Anglers & Sportsmen

Colorado Parks and Wildlife sponsors and coordinates the Youth Fair at the International Sportsmen’s Expo, where more than 500 companies pack three giant halls with outdoor, off-roading, fishing and hunting products and expert presentations. 

​​​​​The huge Youth Fair and Outdoors Colorado Pavilion will offer free activities geared toward young sportsmen and women, including live raptor demonstrations, a catch-and-release fishing pond and "Whac-A-Mussel" game. We'll also have a mini remote control truck off-highway vehicle course.
