A plethora of items designed to make the great outdoors even greater will be on display this weekend in Rock Springs.
The Western Wyoming Sportsman’s Expo will be held Friday through Sunday at the Sweetwater Events Complex.
The expo, now in its fifth year, features vendors showing good such as off-road vehicles, boats and campers, along with fishing and hunting equipment, cookware and camping equipment.
“We also have some western decor,” said Debi Knezovich, whose company Wyoming Home Show is putting on the expo. “There will also be some antler jewelry. It’s not just ATVs and campers and guns and knives.”
Kenzovich has put on other shows throughout the year in Rock Springs, such as the Wyoming Home Show and Home and Holiday Show, for 24 years.
The Sportsman’s Expo came about as recognition of what people do for fun in the state, Knezovich said.
“It’s kind of our lifestyle up in this area and that’s why we live in Wyoming,” she said.
In addition to the equipment and gear on display, several outfitters from Alaska and Canada will be attending the expo, Knezovich said.
“So if you want to plan a hunting trip, there will be outfitters on-site to answer those questions,” she said.
Booths with groups offering educational information will also be set up, as will a “mini golf course” where people can test golfing equipment.
The expo runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
