Toronto Sportsmen’s Show returns for 76th year

The 76th instalment of the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show (TSS) will take place March 14-17 at the International Centre in Mississauga.

The Master Promotions-produced show, which saw a record-breaking 30% spike in attendance in 2023, features hundreds of exhibitors with a wide variety of fishing and hunting-related products and attractions.

OFAH to showcase programs

The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) will have an expanded presence at the show, where it will showcase programs such as the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) through hands-on demos.

Staff from other offerings, including Ontario OUT of DOORS, will also be on hand.

“The TSS provides a unique, one-of-a-kind experience, that connects us directly with those who appreciate the outdoors and are passionate about fishing and hunting,” OFAH Executive Director Angelo Lombardo said. “Being a part of this show puts us directly in contact with our target audience and provides an excellent opportunity to promote the OFAH and our lifestyle.”
