From November 9 to 11 the seventh annual Kevin’s & Holland & Holland Game Fair will return to the Red Hills country around Thomasville, Georgia. This year the game fair will feature more activities and shooting opportunities while maintaining its gathering of sporting-lifestyle vendors and fundraising efforts for Tall Timbers, an organization whose mission is “to foster exemplary land stewardship through research, conservation and education.”

The event kicks off Thursday evening with a cocktail party in downtown Thomasville. Friday morning attendees can choose between two pre-game-fair events: a gun-safety-and-shooting-instruction session at the Ranges at Oakfield, in Thomasville,or a wagon tour and management review of Longpine Plantation’s wild-quail-hunting property with staff from Tall Timbers. Pre-registration is required for each.

The game fair itself opens at 11 am Friday on the grounds of Chinquapin Plantation, a private, historic property on 1,318 acres. The day will include demonstrations, lunch and more than 40 exhibitors showing fine guns, clothing, art, gundogs and more sporting-life goods. Visiting Chinquapin Plantation is a rare opportunity, with its 18,000-square-foot home built in 1910 and exceptional topography along the Ochlocknee River that features some of the last remaining untouched hardwood and pine bottoms.

Also new this year is that shooting opportunities will move to the Ranges at Oakfield from 9 until noon on Saturday. On-site vendors will include Kevin’s, Holland & Holland, Beretta, Benelli USA, Caesar Guerini USA, Syren USA, Gunwerks and Christensen Firearms, and attendees will be able to demo their guns.

Last year the game fair raised $70,000 for Tall Timbers, and to date the event has raised $400,000 to preserve the quail woods. Tickets are limited and available by visiting kevinscatalog.com/pages/game-fair.
