For Your Information
Concessionaires will have food and beverages available for purchase, and many accept only cash, so ATMs will be on site. There is a nominal charge for ammunition at some of the target-shooting venues.
Expo hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The Outdoor Expo is easy to find, located on Carefree Highway, about 1/2 mile west of I-17 in Phoenix.
