​On August 17 and August 18, before the popular elk rut gets into full swing in the PA Wilds Elk Country, the Keystone Elk Country Alliance and the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Visitors Bureau host the largest elk celebration in the northeast during the annual Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo, held on the grounds of the Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette every August.

The Elk Expo features antler scoring experts, a presentation by Pennsylvania Game Commission elk biologist Jeremy Banfield, calling contests, and more than 100 vendors to help ensure great entertainment, food, souvenirs, and a good time for the whole family.

Other featured programming includes the Pennsylvania Game Commission elk tag drawing, Keystone Elk Country Alliance bull tag raffle, live music from Mis’ B Havin, The Wrangler Band, and Nick Forsyth. You won’t want to miss this event!

The Elk Expo is free to attend; however, there is a $3/car fee to cover the expense of shuttle service. See the map below for parking Elk Expo weekend.
