Pheasant Fest returns to Twin Cities in 2020
Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic, the nation’s largest upland-themed event, will be held Feb. 14-16, 2020, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in the Twin Cities, Pheasants Forever said in a news release Friday, March 15.
The three-day celebration of upland habitat, hunting and conservation annually draws more than 20,000 and will be presented by Federal Premium Ammunition.
Minnesota is ground zero for Pheasants Forever, the nonprofit wildlife conservation organization having formed in St. Paul in 1982. The Kandiyohi County Chapter of Pheasants Forever was the first local affiliate for the budding group in 1983. Today, there are 72 Pheasants Forever chapters, 2 Quail Forever chapters and more than 22,000 Pheasants Forever and/or Quail Forever members in Minnesota, making it the group’s largest membership footprint by state.
National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic combines a national consumer show, wildlife habitat seminar series, and family event complete with puppies, tractors, shotguns, and art. It’s grown to be the country’s largest event for upland hunters, sporting dog owners, and wildlife habitat conservationists. In addition to providing significant economic impact for the host community and attending outdoor industry vendors, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever uses its National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic to discuss habitat with landowners and recruit members to its wildlife conservation mission.
