Northwest Sportsman Shows

The Northwest Sportsman Shows as far as I have been able to find out, started in 1920. I do not have any information on that show at this time.  I do have an article on the second annual show as covered by the Fishing Magazine "American Angler" in their July 1921 issue. I do not have any information on how big the first Show was but the article states the second one had a bigger turn out with 41,500 visitors passing through the doors.  

The next Northwest Sportsman Show that I will cover will be the 1935 Show. This show was held in the Civic Auditorium who's name was changed to the Food Circus during the 1962 Worlds Fair and is still standing to this day.  This is also the location where I attended my first Sportsman's show in the late 1950's. This wonderful scan was provided by Doug Cooper of the Snohomish Sportsmen's Club. 

The last Northwest Sportsman Show that I will cover will be the 1936 Show. This would be the 16th annual show and had grown to an outdoor facility and went for ten days according to the Shows program. This program will be displayed in it's entirety. If you have any old programs for Northwest held Sportsman's Shows, I would appreciate it if you would please contact me.
