A fun and exciting weekend at Orvis Sandanona in Millbrook, New York
Game Fair & Country Sporting Weekend
Orvis Game Fair & Sporting Weekend | September 16-17, 2017
The Orvis Game Fair and Sporting Weekend—a fun and exciting outing for the whole family—will be held at Sandanona Shooting Grounds in Millbrook, New York, on September 16 & 17, 2017, between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM. Just a short drive north of New York City, Sandanona in autumn is the perfect place in the perfect time of year to enjoy the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley.
Beyond their pastoral beauty, however, the Sandanona Grounds is a singular place with historical significance. Going there is like taking a step back in time, to a place where the traditions of the field and the hunt are held in the highest regard, and where wingshooting is a passion that links the past with the present. This venerable sporting institution is the oldest permitted shooting preserve in the country, so old in fact, that the main lodge was built during the presidency of Thomas Jefferson.
All around the Sandanona property, you'll find artists and craftsmen at work, more than 70 of the finest exhibitors and vendors, and many events for kids and adults. A few highlights of the weekend are fly-fishing demonstrations, dog-training seminars, birds of prey exhibitions, a variety of hands-on youth programs, and a Land Rover driving course.
Come join us! This is an excellent opportunity to try your hand at shooting or casting a fly rod. Expert instructors will be onsight offering free fly-casting lessons and the opportunity to shoot under their watchful eye in a fun, safe environment. This is the perfect time and place to introduce the whole family to these lifelong pursuits. Plus, you can enter to win Orvis clothing, dog beds, and more!
