Visit the Dixie Scout Expo on Feb 24, 2018, at the Dixie Center in St George
Expo Visitor Hours: 9am – 2pm
The Dixie Scout Expo is a one-day Scouting event that brings together Scouts and community organizations from throughout Southern Utah. The Expo provides a day of intergenerational family fun through hands-on exhibits, displays and competitions.
Over 100 Scouting community booths will be on display showcasing our Scouting programs to the public. This makes it a great opportunity for program enhancement and recruiting for existing units. It could also be a means to introduce Scouting to potential new members. The Expo also allows Scouts to raise money for Scouting-related activities and expenses for the upcoming year.
Scouts will be selling tickets up until the day of the event.

Tickets sales begin – January 13, 2018
The Scouting Expo is a great way for people to come and see what Scouting is all about. Scouts can do this by selling expo tickets to friends, families and neighbors. This is no ordinary ticket, though. The BSA has teamed up with Starving Student Cards, which is a discount card packed with hundreds of dollars of free stuff and over $4,000 in discounts. Tickets sell for just $20 dollars and Scouts keep 75% of the funds – $10 of every card stays with the unit and $5 goes back to local area Scouting. not only can you win funds, you can also win lots of great prizes.
Scouts must turn in their ticket-sales by February 20, 2018.
For every ticket a Scout sells, $10 goes back to his unit. With enough sold, this one fundraiser could fund your unit’s entire year! Schedule out your year’s activities early to determine how many tickets need to be sold to fund all your activities.
Win a chance to go to Disneyland!
All the fun of Scouting in one place
At the Dixie Scout Expo, Scouts can expect to find many fun Scouting activities, including Pinewood Derby races, animal shows and hands-on Scouting booths.
Pinewood Derby races will go through most of the day, and will feature the fastest cars from every participating troop! You won’t want to miss this.
The Birds of Prey show is the next “must see” of the day. At noon, the Southwest Wildlife Foundation will present a show all about birds of prey. Make sure to visit this show and see the iconic birds of the Southwest in real life.
