Canoecopia: world’s largest paddling expo

We were at the 2014 Canoecopia last week in Madison, Wisconsin. The organizers say it is the largest paddling show in the world- we have been there many times, and it is BIG. Start making plans now to go to the 2015 Canoecopia – you won’t be disappointed.

Lake Superior and Lake Superior Provincial Park were featured in 2 booths/displays at the show: Ontario Provincial Parks and Naturally Superior Adventures.

One of the big attractions for the show is the variety of presentations. There are 10 presentations every hour (89 presenters and 114 topics), ranging from paddling around Lake Baikal (Russia), the coast of France, Lapland, to closer areas like Pukaskwa National Park; The Art of Great Adventure Writing; to Understanding Boat Design.

Here is a list of the topics and speakers from the 2014 event:
