If you have something that is wildlife/outdoor related, consider being a vendor or exhibitor at the annual Wildlife & Outdoor Expo in Bethel, MO. Participants are welcome to simply showcase or market and sell merchandise. We will provide booth space inside the Colony Barn or inside one of our Colony buildings along Main Street. If you have equipment or sport utility vehicles, there will be ample space outside adjacent to the Colony Barn.

There is no fee for you to set up a booth inside or outside. Our goal right now is to encourage as many vendors and exhibitors as possible to participate in our expo. There will be opportunities to help support the expo if you have interest in doing so; if you would like to donate something for prizes we would certainly appreciate it. Some of the donated items may be used as prizes for the games and contests.

If your company or business would be interested in presenting a 10-20 minute seminar providing product information or instruction, that would be welcomed. Indicate your interest when you contact us.

We are very excited about the potential for our third year. Hunting and other outdoor activities are very popular in this part of the country. It is our hope that this expo would offer something for the entire family. We want to offer interesting things to see, education on a variety of outdoor topics, and entertainment for everyone attending. We know that your participation would certainly enhance those outcomes.
