Just before the popular elk rut gets into full swing, the Keystone Elk Country Alliance and the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Visitors Bureau host the largest elk celebration in the northeast during the annual Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo, held on the grounds of the Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette every August. The Elk Expo will feature antler scoring experts, a presentation by Pennsylvania Game Commission elk biologist Jeremy Banfield, calling contests, and more than 100 vendors to help ensure great entertainment, food, souvenirs, and a good time for the whole family. Other featured programing includes the Pennsylvania Game Commission elk tag drawing, Keystone Elk Country Alliance bull tag raffle, live music from Mis' B Havin, The Wrangler Band, and Nick Forsyth.
