Hunt, Fish and Swap is a premier outdoors equipment show in Springfield, MO which benefits The Arc of the Ozarks. Hunt, Fish and Swap started as the merging of one man's passions, hunting, fishing and supporting people with disabilities, into one event. He never imagined where it would lead.
Over its first four years, Hunt, Fish and Swap attracted over 8,000 shoppers, grown to over 100 booths, and raised $43,000 and helped The Arc purchase a wheel chair accessible van and provide other needed services.
For the events' fifth year, after selling out The Arc's gym in 2012, the event will be held in the Springfield Expo Center in downtown Springfield. The event will feature more booths than ever filled with hunting, fishing and other outdoors equipment from throughout the Midwest.
