Schedule of Events

Join us in Nashville!

In February, the NWTF will take over Nashville for our 46th annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show, Feb. 16-20, 2022 once again at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

Our convention and sport show is the largest consumer show in Nashville with more than 350 exhibitors featuring some of the top companies and brands in the outdoor industry.

Of course, you can’t experience Nashville without great music. The NWTF invites you to celebrate and enjoy convention week with three live performances!

Get the party started Thursday, Feb. 17 in Nashville with our Kickoff Party, and enjoy a live show with Brother Maven, whose musical roots are deep in southern soul.

Celebrate the stars of the NWTF at our Awards Dinner Friday, Feb. 18 and hear music from Stephanie Quayle, the first female country music ambassador of Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s.

And returning to our Nashville convention for 2022 is Chris Janson! Janson is an ACM award-winner who has had four No. 1 hit singles, including “Buy Me A Boat,” “Fix a Drink,” “Good Vibes” and “Done.” The country music sensation will close out our convention with a live show Saturday, Feb. 19 following the NWTF Grand National Auction.

Note: Sport Show dates are Feb. 17-19. The only event open to the public Sunday, Feb. 20 is the worship service.
