Adventures await with return of Fort Wayne’s Outdoor Sports, Lake & Cabin Show

Got cabin fever? Venture out from winter hibernation to plan and book your next outdoor adventure, customize your very own rustic dream home, or simply enjoy yourself at the 2nd annual Outdoor Sports, Lake & Cabin Show, March 18-20 at the Allen County Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Ind.

“If you love spending time outside and enjoying nature’s bounty, this is a show you won’t want to miss!” said David Marquart, director of operations for Coliseum Productions.

“Our show is a total-lifestyle event that focuses on the things people love to do, as well as the ‘where’ and ‘how’ people want to live.”

An anticipated 13,000 outdoor enthusiasts will find more than a hundred exhibitors, attractions, seminars and clinics featured in the following feature areas:

“Last year’s show was a huge success, so this year we’re taking it to another level—more contests, giveaways and deals than you can imagine!” Marquart said. “We even have a fishing outfitter setting up an immense 800 square-foot ‘store on the floor,’ full of the latest
must-have products.”
