The fourth annual Hoosier Outdoor Experience, which is free to all participants, is coming to Indianapolis’ Fort Harrison State Park, Saturday, Sept. 15, and Sunday, Sept. 16.

As in previous years, there will be activities for everyone, from archery and target shooting to mountain biking, various types of fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and much more.

The activities are free and you also can bring your own food, although food booths and trucks will be selling their specialties. 

The Hoosier Outdoor Experience, which runs 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day that weekend, is presented by the DNR and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation. The goal is to introduce people to outdoor activities they may have never tried.

Online advance registration at is requested to assist the presenters and activity providers with staffing and planning. Watch for event updates there or at
