Chicagoland’s Outdoor Show for the Entire Family!

Over the past 25 years, the Tinley Park Fishing Show has grown to be one of the best, if not “The Best” outdoor shows in the Midwest. We attribute our success to all of the hard work by our staff and students and we strive to make this an outdoor show that can be enjoyed by the entire family. All of our exhibitors are dedicated to fishing, hunting and the outdoors and that makes this show enjoyed by everyone who attends.


Tinley Park Fishing & Outdoor Show Celebrates it 25th Year

Twenty-five years and still the Most Affordable Show in Chicagoland!  This year the Tinley Park Fishing and Outdoor Show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 10th & 11th 2018.

This is an affordable show where Mom, Dad, and the kids can get in the door at a great price. Admission to the show is $6.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors, and $4.00 for kids age 7 to 13; little anglers age 6 and under are free.  Held each year at the Tinley Park High School, this show offers over 180,000 square space of exhibitor space and has ample free parking.

Exhibitors from several states come to this show to sell just about everything made for fishing and outdoor fun.  There are vacation resorts represented from Canada to Kentucky, charter-fishing trips can be booked for the Great Lakes in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio.  Fishing clubs will be at the show and numerous guide services will offer fishing trips for Crappie, Bass, Walleye and Muskie.

In addition to the great exhibitors, there will be fishing seminars and demonstrations.  This year anglers can sit in on all new seminars for the latest information on crappie, bass, walleye and musky fishing. Takedown Eventures will be setting up a target range on the main stage for kids young and old to test their shooting skills. Again this year there will be a Silent Auction where you will be able to bid on a trip of a lifetime,a custom made rod, along with many other great items.

The Tinley Park Athletic Booster Club puts together what is now known as one of the largest outdoor shows in the greater Chicagoland area and supports all of the student athletes at Tinley Park High School. Adding to the show’s success is the support given from sponsors like St Croix Rods, Plano Molding, Frabil, Cabalas, Bettenhausen Motor Sales, Chauncey’s Great Outdoors, Ranger Boats, and Lowrance Electronics.

The show is held at the Tinley Park High School, 6111 W. 175th Street, just east of Ridgeland, in Tinley Park, Illinois.  To see a map with directions to the show, a list of exhibitors, the seminar schedule and more, visit the Tinley Park Fishing and Outdoors Show web site at
