The 2018 OSTA Convention is going to be held at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds September 7 & 8 in beautiful Fairfield County, Ohio. This area is surrounded by a variety of sportsman's activities.
There will be plenty of offsite local tourist activites, and public fishing, public hunting and hiking are all just a short drive from the fairgrounds.
There will be plenty of primitive camping ($10) and improved campsites ($25) available.
Lots of new vendors will be at the show, as well as many that have been coming for years. It looks like the fur market may be improving for this fall's season and the convention is the perfect place to stock up on all of your trapping supplies!
Once again this year, there will not be a host hotel. Everyone please remember to book your room early. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served daily at the fairgrounds.
