December 23, 2021 – Three days of summer fun in January?  That’s what’s happening in Billings.  The Great Rockies Sportshow returns in 2022 with more fun and adventure than ever before.   The annual three-day event is the largest presentation of fishing, hunting, boats, RVs, travel and outdoor products in Montana.   Not only can visitors buy outdoor-related products they can also book their next vacation to Alaska/Canada/Africa or buy a new boat or RV.   Door prizes, too.

Lots of children and family activities all weekend.  Highlighting the weekend’s entertainment is Steve Martin’s Working Wildlife featuring an enormous “Tag” the Kodiak Bear.  Steve will be entertaining audiences daily with the Kodiak bear viewable in between shows.

More fun kids activities include the Kids catch and release Trout Pond, Cabela’s kids archery, and the always popular Gemstone & Fossil Mining.

The first Boat and RV sale of the season rolls into MetraPark too as part of the Great Rockies Sportshow.  Meet with reps, shop and compare RV’s and boats in one place.  Ice fishing houses are on sale too.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Great Elk Tour will be at the show featuring a number of record elk.

Learning is a fun part of the show and seminars are going on all day long. Seminars include “Walleye Fishing Tackle, & Techniques” by Vern Gagnon, Sonar Basics by Jesse Reuter, Outdoor Photography by Nick Fucci, plus many more.  Montana author and outfitter John Billings will be at the show too showcasing his book, “Into the Tall and Uncut” at his booth.
