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 hoosieroutdoorexperience.IN.gov is
requested to assist the presenters and activity providers with staffing
and planning. Watch for event updates there or at
