With over 85 hands-on activities featuring outdoor education, sports and recreation, there is something for everyone to touch, see and do. Guided shuttles run continuously to three locations within the park — Resource & Education Center, Eric Wiebe Shooting Complex & Riverfront.

Both 2012 and 2013 had an attendance of over 52,000 people; making this the largest outdoor expo in the Midwest.

This FREE fun-filled, family friendly weekend is made possible through the support of generous sponsors, educational exhibitors, over hundreds of dedicated volunteers, and thousands of visitors. Thank You!
