Come see the show everyone is talking about!

The 12th annual Southern Tier Outdoor Show will be held Oct 13-14, 2018 in Bath, New York, and offers a variety of wildlife shows, exhibitors and interactive activities to help both sportsmen and their families explore the outdoors. The show is held at the Steuben County Fairgrounds off I-86 Exit 38, so local businesses and organizations could share their products and services to encourage participation in outdoor activities, promote environmental stewardship and offer outdoor awareness and education. The show is accepting new vendors and sponsors at

About 7,000 people flock to this show each October to spend a day enjoying exhibitors, demonstrations, wildlife shows and professional seminars. The $5 per person/$10 per car fee includes free parking, shows, activities and a show program. The show is open 9-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. The event adds new features and vendors each year!

The 2018 feature will be the high flying action of Dock Dogs, the independent governing and sanctioning body for dock jumping and dock diving canine performance sports. Throughout the show, DockDogs will present the Big Air Wave competition accompanied by Extreme Vertical and Speed Retrieve competition for both competitors and spectators to enjoy. The competitions are open to any and everyone. Teams are made up of one dog and one handler.

A key focus of the show is to get youth involved in outdoor activities, and there are plenty of hands-on activities for them to try. They include archery, fishing, tomahawk throwing, the Bristol Mountain Aerial Rope Course, the Crosman Air Rifle Trailer and much more.

For adults, there is Crossbow testing,  New York Big Buck Club trophy scoring, and numerous raffles including the grand prize for a 4-man Finger Lakes Waterfowl trip.

All this plus around 150 exhibitors were on site with a variety of outdoor products and services. The food court offered a dozen different choices of meals and snacks all day. For more information, visit or call 607-664-2300. Join us on Facebook at and Instagram at @STOutdoorShow.
