Fall Gun and Sportsman Shows

Fall Gun/Sportsman show season is just around the corner.fall-5-1514430

Probably the biggest thing to note for the fall show season is the Rochester Gun Show (Hemlock fairgrounds) is NOT going to happen.  Here is their statement:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Our planned September 2016 show at Hemlock is Cancelled. ESACA will not be holding another show in 2016. We are currently working on arrangements for our next show and venue for it in early 2017. Details will be announced as soon as we can.

That being said, there are still plenty of opportunities to pick up some great deals on sporting goods.  Here are the shows we will be setup at.

  • Hamburg Gun Show:  September 10-11
  • Syracuse Gun Show: September 17-18
  • Southern Tier Outdoor Recreation Expo: October 8-9

These are the larger shows this fall.  There are always some smaller ‘local’ shows.
