    The Palmetto Sportsmen's Classic has earned the reputation of being South Carolina's premier hunting, fishing and outdoors show. The 2017 Classic will continue this legacy by having over 320 exhibitors in attendance to satisfy all of your outdoors wants and needs. In addition to the exhibitors, there will be a catch and release fishing pond for the kids to enjoy, an extreme raptors show and America's Favorite Fisherman (Jimmy Houston) will be on site.
