Yes, the pond behind the shop is open, but there won't be test paddling until mid-April (because cold). But a week from today we'll be opening the doors to the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall. And that will be the result of 360 days of work since the last Canoecopia.
Be at the front doors at 2:55 PM pm on Friday the 8th if you want to be in this year's selfie. :-)
The speaker schedule (as well as the entire show guide) is available online! Just go to the drop down and select show guide. The Canoecopia Show Guide is out, all 35,000 of them. If you didn't get one, it's too late to mail one now, but it's online and you can pick up a physical copy at the show.
Canoecopia is the largest paddlesports consumer event in the world.
The Alliant Energy Center Exposition Hall is more than 250,000 square feet, and the main hall contains more than 100,000 square feet of kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards, outdoor equipment and clothing, with the best selection of the season, make Canoecopia a "must go" place for gear!
With over 100 presentations and clinics, Canoecopia is also an educational event where you can learn about specific gear for your style of paddling, develop skills to get you where you want to go, and discover some of the many places to paddle, both near and far. If you're interested in experiencing life on the water, Canoecopia is the best place to spend the weekend!
