Canoecopia is the largest paddlesports consumer event in the world.
More than 250,000 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! Over 180 seminars and clinics make Canoecopia an educational event where you can learn about the perfect 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.

Canoecopia will follow the Dane County Public Health Order. For further information see Dane County Guidelines
Virtual Canoecopia won’t replace the energy that comes from person-to-person interactions, but we want it to be the next best thing! Last year's virtual event was a big success for the paddling community both near and far, so we decided to offer it again this year. Presentations for the virtual event will be pre-recorded, so whether you live far away, or even if you attend the show in-person, a virtual ticket will give you access to presentations long after the weekend, available for viewing for 90 days!
Plus you can wear your pajamas. :)
If you're interested in experiencing life on the water, Canoecopia is the best place to spend the weekend!
Registration for exhibitors for 2022 is open!
Canoecopia is a great showcase for your business or products. We allow select outfitters, guides, schools, and people with a specialized product that is outdoor or paddlesports-related to exhibit at Canoecopia (no ginzu knives or Sham-wows, please). If you're interested, contact Darren
at email@example.com. Don't wait, we'll be filling up quickly!
Requests for speaker proposals are now being accepted!
Do you have a great story to tell that is related to paddling? Email Amelia
at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll send you the application. While we do bring back popular speakers year after year, well over half of our speakers are new each year.
