Memorial Day Roadtrip Idea: Mountain Archery Fest in Durango, Colorado

Do you and your family members love to shoot bows? Are you free this Memorial Day weekend? 

If the answers to the above questions are “yes and yes,” then consider attending the first annual Mountain Archery Fest at Purgatory Mountain Resort in Durango, Colorado.

The inaugural event will be held May 24-26, 2019. However, if one mountain event is not enough for you, or if you can’t make it to Colorado, then other events are planned for Brian Head Resort June 14-16 in St. George, Utah, and Taos, New Mexico, August 9-11.

Mountain Archery Fest Details

Whether you’re looking to shoot and have some fun, or if you’re competitive and want a chance to win some money, MAF has something for you. The lineup includes a Kirsch 3-D archery tournament series with six courses, a Train To Hunt sprint race, a kids course and fun novelty shoots. There will also be music, food and drink, award winning archery films and a vendor/demo village.

After you’re done shooting on the mountain, you can stop by Vendor Village to check out new archery products. Reps from the following companies will be there to answer your questions: Archery Trade Association (ATA), Pope & Young Club, Kirsch Hunting, Train to Hunt, Kryptek, Initial Ascent, HHA Sports, Back Country Hunters and Anglers, Wilderness Attitude Podcast, Colorado Bowhunters Association and local hunting/conservations groups/sponsors.

Adults can end their day with a glass of beer at Saturday’s “PYnt Night” sponsored by the Pope & Young Club, and kick back and enjoy award winning archery films.
