BATH, New York - The Southern Tier Outdoor Show, created in 2007, has announced that the show has grown too large to remain at Wilkins RV, Inc. in Bath, where it has been held for 10 years.
The show's board of directors began looking for a suitable new space to continue to grow in 2017, and the lead candidate for the new location is the Steuben County Fairgrounds in Bath. The show will remain on the second weekend of October, which in 2017 is Oct. 14-15.
The show is looking for new volunteers to help execute the additional planning required to put on the 2017 event at a new location. The planning committee meets every other month beginning in January and would welcome people who want to assist with exhibitors, promotion, attractions, services or grants.
