NOVI, Mich. – If you are into fishing, hunting or just Michigan outdoors, then the OUTDOORAMA might be something you want to check out.

Known as one of Michigan’s oldest outdoor shows and one of the longest-running shows in the Midwest. The OUTDOORAMA has been educating nature lovers for five decades.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the OUTDOORAMA will take place on Feb. 23-26 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.

The event will have regional and national vendors for hunting gear, fishing gear, boats and motors, educational seminars for hunting safety, charter fishing trips and much more.

A spokesperson from the event stated there will be a Timberworks Lumberjack Show at the event.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their deer, bear, elk and turkey trophies to be scored for free by the Commemorative Bucks of Michigan. The CBM has been the official record keeper for the state since 1981. The organization uses the Boone and Crockett scoring system to maintain records on Michigan’s deer.

“OUTDOORAMA has been educating and entertaining individuals and families for five decades with fun and exciting entertainment, educational seminars and a huge display of hunting gear, fishing gear, boats and motors, accessories and much more,” said Show Manager Ben Nielsen. “This show started back in 1973 at the old state fairgrounds on 8 Mile Road and continues to attract tens of thousands of sportsmen and sportswomen from across Michigan each year. That’s a testament to our deep outdoors traditions and conservation heritage.”
