For a state known for its love of football, chasing big whitetail bucks and catching big bass, and a penchant for cowboy boots and 10-gallon-size hats, it's an outdoors show as big as the state of Texas.

That's a good way to describe the first Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest scheduled for July 20-22 at Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center. Tickets to the event cost $10 for adults, $7 for children and $5 for military, veterans, and first responders.

Hosted by Sportsman Channeland its Outdoor Sportsman Group sister networks of Outdoor Channel, World Fishing Network, and MyOutdoorTV– the event will feature nearly 500 vendors along with more than 15,000 attendees expected.


Such an event is perfect for the Lone Star State where more than 3.5 million hunters and anglers live while spending more than $6.2 billion annually in their respective pursuits.


Given the outdoors passion of Texas hunters, anglers, shooting enthusiasts, and other pursuers of the outdoors lifestyle, the choice of Houstonhome to some great barbecue, Tex-Mex, seafood, and the world champion Astros baseball team - is the perfect venue for the three-day exposition.


"The outdoor community in Houston is excited about this event and our Outdoor Sportsman Group talent and celebrities will be there in full force," said Jim Liberatore, Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO. "Some of the biggest names in the industry will be on hand to celebrate the outdoors and Houston at the Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest."

From a gear junkie's heaven to a full slate of seminars and workshops to special events and more, there's a little something for everyone who loves to hunt, fish, shoot, and enjoy the outdoors. Over the course of the event's three day run in the 22,000-square foot exhibit hall, top regional and national brands in hunting, fishing, shooting, archery, outdoor products, destinations, and outfitters will be hosting live demos and lectures.

"We have a great list of outdoor experts and celebrities, as well as some of the biggest names in outdoor recreation, clothing, gear and equipment also ready to go," added LIberatore. "As an organization and leader in the outdoor industry, the Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest will be great."


Don't forget about the Lone Star State sized line-up of outdoors experts and television celebrities, a list that includes well-known figures including: Michael Waddell (Bone Collector, Outdoor Channel), Brian "Pigman" Quaca (Pigman: The Series, Sportsman Channel), and Tom McMillan (MCMILLAN, Sportsman Channel).

With Comcast Houston serving as the official entertainment sponsor of the Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest, others are scheduled to attend July's SCOF event, a growing list that also includes: Pat and Nicole Reeve (Driven, Outdoor Channel), Scott Leysath (The Sporting Chef, Sportsman Channel), and Joe Thomas (Ultimate Match Fishing, Outdoor Channel).

Nearly all the celebrities and experts mentioned above will be signing autographs, smiling and posing for fan selfies and giving expert advice and tips on how to be more successful in the outdoors world, whether you live in Texas or somewhere else across North America.


"With Houston's rich tradition in hunting, fishing and outdoor lifestyle activities, the Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest will remind all of us about the positive wonders of the outdoors in spite of the fury nature some-times displays," said Liberatore.

The bottom line is that the first ever Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest is a showcase for you, the American outdoor enthusiast, and your friends and family. So even if you don't own a pair of cowboy boots and a 10-gallon hat, make plans to head for Houston in July for some Texas-sized outdoors fun!
