The event at the park's convention center will feature seminars, demonstrations and vendor booths with hunting and fishing guides, taxidermists, outdoor sports and more.

Admission will be $5 each day. Concessions will include elk and buffalo chili.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation will host a Big Game Banquet on Sept. 7 at 5 p.m. EDT, featuring a live auction, silent auction, drawings, games and a meal. Admission is $20.

Proceeds are used to enhance elk country habitat in Kentucky and across the country.
