The Lehigh Valley Sportsman Show returns to Agri-Plex (Agriculture Hall) at the Allentown Fairgrounds with an expanded, three-day schedule beginning Friday, Feb. 28, and continuing Saturday and Sunday, March 1 and 2.

Due in part to the support of Cabela’s Hamburg store, Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association, “Pennsylvania Outdoor News” and vendors the show will expand to a three-day weekend event as opposed to last year’s Saturday and Sunday format. Show hours are Friday, Feb. 28, 1-8 p.m.; Saturday, March 1, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, March 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

By expanding the Lehigh Valley Sportsman Show to its original three-day format more vendors, exhibitors, guides and outfitters than last year will fill the 60,000-square foot Agri-Plex. In addition, there will be an expanded schedule of seminars and special events, most notably of which is the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association (POWA) auction of outdoors-related merchandise and trips donated by both those at the show and others to benefit outdoors youth education projects returns, which will be held Sunday, March 2, from 1-3 p.m., with services being donated by professional auctioneer Kim Kessler.

Through the generous support of show promoters, vendors, guides and outfitters, POWA has raised more than $400,000 through its auctions at outdoors shows. All the money is used to support a scholarship to Penn State University and another to the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown for journalism majors with an interest in outdoors communication and underwrite various youth projects such as field day, conservation camps, fishing events, shooting events and school nature activities.

Agri-Plex (Agricultural Hall) is located at the Allentown Fairgrounds, 302 North 17th St., Allentown. Admission is $10, ages 12 and younger are admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult and there is no charge for parking.
