The Fred Hall Shows have been an important part of the Fishing, Hunting, Boating, and Outdoor Recreation Travel community in Southern California for almost three-quarters of a century. The 74th annual Fred Hall Show at the Long Beach Convention Center brought enormous joy to both exhibitors and attendees. Since then we have tried hard to produce the 44th annual Fred Hall Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Unfortunately due to the closure of the Del Mar Fairgrounds we are unable to keep our May dates and circumstances prevent us from being able to announce a firm new date at this time. We are determined to keep trying. Look for us to be back at the fairgrounds in the Fall. Stay updated at to find out more about “ Hall in the Fall”!

Lighting Restrictions and Lights Out Policy

1. LIGHTING RESTRICTIONS – Certain halogen lights are deemed unsafe and will not be allowed on the show floor. These steps are being implemented to reduce the risk of fires related to halogen lighting. Please see the attached samples of the approved and unapproved halogen bulbs for your convenience.


2. LIGHTS OUT POLICY – All exhibitor booth lighting must be turned off by the exhibitor by close of show nightly.


***HELPFUL HINT: Plug all lights into an approved power strip(s), not to exceed 1400 watts per power strip. Remember to place the power strip in a readily accessible area within your booth and turn off the power strip each night at close of show.
