Outdoor Adventure Show 2019

SANTA FE – The annual New Mexico Outdoor Adventures Hunting and Fishing Show opens at noon Friday, Feb.15 and continues through Sunday, Feb. 17, in the Manuel Lujan Building at the state fairgrounds in Albuquerque.

The event is bigger and better than ever with new exhibits and hands-on activities hosted by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.

New this year will be a free ‘catch and release’ pond located in the red barn. Try your luck catching a tagged fish to win a prize sponsored by a vendor. At the start of each day’s show, the first 15 people to catch a tagged fish will win a prize from one of the shows vendors. There will also be prizes Saturday starting at 1 p.m.

Visitors can receive instruction on off-highway vehicles (OHV), fishing, archery and shooting. The event features hands-on demonstrations of the latest equipment for hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation. Boats, kayaks, OHVs, and RVs will be on display and conservation organizations, outfitters and guides will be on hand to answer questions.

The show opens to the public from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free to all licensed anglers, hunters and trappers. Youth younger than 18 get in free and everyone else pays just $3.
