The All American Outdoor Expo, which will take place Jan. 7-9 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, in Fort Wayne, Ind., is back on schedule for 2022, after being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, according to a report by Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly.

Tickets cost $15 for adults. Those with military identification and veterans will get $3 off their tickets. Admittance is free for those 16 and under.

Citing supply chain issues, Expo Director David Marquart said those who are interested in outdoor toys like boats, RVs and ATVs should get their orders in early.

“We are going to have some of that stuff there to buy. It’s just really hard to find some of these things right now,” he said.

Marquart said multiple dealers and manufacturers will be on hand to help attendees buy the items they need including American Sunspace, Indiana Wild and Zoomers RV. A partial list of the vendors is available on the website. New and used items will available for purchase.

“If they aren’t going to buy what’s on the floor, it takes so long to get it in right now,” Marquart said. “So it is really important that you get your orders in early for anything you do want with the supply chain issues right now.”
