2021 sucked for a lot of reasons, and one of those was that the Tri-Cities Sportsman Show at the HAPO Center was canceled. Well, we are back on for 2022! It's all happening this weekend, Friday through Sunday.

This is a family fun event and features something new this year...an All-Star Dog Show that features dogs that have been rescued from pounds and shelters from across the country. Many folks say this is the most incredible Dog Show on Earth! There will be three dog shows on Friday and Saturday with two shows on Sunday. Thanks to Legends Casino Hotel for sponsoring this incredible show!

Another major attraction that is new this year is the Tri-Cities Sportsman Show Marketplace. This is a giant buy sell or trade area.

Fishing and hunting experts will share their valuable knowledge in special hourly presentations. Campers boats and pickups will be on display, plus the 24-foot climbing wall will be set up if you'd like to test your climbing skills!

Sunday is Kids Day brought to you by Sportsman's Warehouse in Kennewick. There will be a free Crosman air rifle range for young shooters and 'Lunker Lake' will be full of real trout for the kiddos. Fishing is free for all kids on Sunday only.

Hunters won't want to miss the incredible display of big game trophies taken from Washington and Oregon.

Hourly door prizes will be given away all three days of the show so make sure to sign up! General admission is $11 for adults and $6 for kids ages 6-12. Children under 6 are free. Visit Tri-CitiesSportsmanShow.com for all the details, including Senior Day on Friday and Kids Day on Sunday. Open Friday from noon to 7, Saturday 10 to 6 and Sunday 10 to 4.

I found a video that shows some of the events from a past show!
