Ordinarily we wouldn't feature 'advertising' for individual retailers or sales events. However, Canoecopia is so much more than just a commercial event -- it is a celebration of the coming of spring, and with it, the new paddling season (to those for whom paddling is seasonal -- some of us more addicted paddlers manage to paddle year-round). Many attend this event just for the opportunity to 'touch base' with old friends, to chat with factory reps and outfitters, to get a first-hand look and feel of what's new in the world of paddlesports (and somewhat more general outdoor equipment, etc). And others may go for the variety of seminars on a wide range of topics: travelogs, expeditions, photography, first-aid, age- or gender-specific topics or concerns, ..., the list is rather extensive.

Where: Alliant Energy Center, 1919 Alliant Energy Way, Madison, Wisconsin
Hours: Friday 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Saturday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Sunday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

So . . . get your carpools together and head to what they bill as "the largest paddlesports consumer event in the world"!
