Welcome to Missouri River Outdoor Expo! We invite you to Ponca State Park as we celebrate the 9th annual event, September 21 & 22, 2013.

With over 85 hands-on activities featuring outdoor education, sports and recreation, there is something for everyone to touch, see and do. Guided shuttles run continuously to three locations within the park—Resource & Education Center, Eric Wiebe Shooting Complex & Riverfront.

In 2012, the Missouri River Outdoor Expo was the proud recipient of the “Excellence in Conservation” award in 2012 from the Midwest Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.

Last year, over 52,000 visitors made this the largest outdoor expo in the Midwest.

This event is made possible through the support of generous sponsors, educational exhibitors, hundreds of dedicated volunteers and thousands of visitors. Thank you!

As always, this fun-filled, family friendly weekend is FREE! Only a valid park permit is required for entry. Permits may be purchased at gate for $5 per vehicle, or $25 for an annual permit good at all NE state parks in 2013. Permits may also be purchased online, click here.
