KELOWNA – For two days this weekend, the Interior's largest outdoor sport show will be in Kelowna with dozens of vendors covering everything from hiking, fishing, camping, hunting and more.

The B.C. Interior Sportsman Show takes place April 9 and 10 at the Capital News Centre. With guest speakers, exhibitors, demonstrations and door prizes, the Sportsman Show is where you want to be if you’re a fan of the outdoors.

Vendors and demonstrations include taxidermists, off-road vehicle dealers and modifiers, camping suppliers, archery shops and cooking demos.

A media release from the event organizers says this years Sportsman Show will feature a Master Chef finalist, the host of a cooking TV show and guest chef’s showing how to fillet a fish, marinade some wild game, grow your own food and make your own sausage.

“With over 28,000 anglers and 18,000 licensed hunters in the Okanagan, we have a community that loves the outdoors and providing for their families,” the release says. “But sometimes there is apprehension in what to do with their catch. The upcoming BC Interior Sportsman Show will have speakers discussing the various methods of preparing food. With sessions from local and celebrity experts, there will be presentations on Game Cooking, Sausage Making, and Fish Filleting.”

Prizes include a fishing boat loader from Cap-it Kelowna, a houseboat vacation, a salmon and halibut fishing trip on Vancouver Island and a three-day, all-inclusive stay at Douglas Lake Ranch.
