New in 2020 at the WI Fishing Expo is Fish Bingo. The first 500 kids 12 and under each day of the expo will receive a bingo card. Fill each spot on the card and your child will receive a WI Fishing Expo goodie bag. The goodie bag will include a Little Cleo lure courtesy of Acme Lures, some candy, temporary WI Fishing Expo tattoo and more. This promotion will run while supplies last.

Dear Expo Enthusiasts,

We regret to inform you that we have received notification from our host venue, Madison’s Alliant Energy Center, that they have extended the closure of their facility likely until 7/1/21, and therefore they have canceled all during those times, including ours for February 26-28, 2021.

As you all know, we’ve been working diligently to prepare for the upcoming event, despite the various challenges to space planning, safety measures, determining how to have our traditional seminar series in a virtual style, and even the extended closure of the Canadian border.  This setback is disappointing for us, as it undoubtably is for many of you, and our vender partners.

Attempting to prepare options, we spent much of the month of last July researching and visiting alternative sites, in preparation for just such a decision.  Unfortunately, we were unable to contract a space sufficiently large enough, and with the necessary facilities, for a date set which was acceptable to a majority of our vendor partners, as confirmed by a survey we completed in early August.

Thus our 2021 WI Fishing Expo has to be canceled, and we’ll begin making arrangements with our vendor partners for the 2022 event, slated for February 25th through the 27th.

Remember fellow anglers, this isn’t goodbye, just so long, till next year!  Wait until you see what’s new for 2022!
