Boatbuilders should cast off the winter blues, or snowshoes, or whatever, and come see us at the huge Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin. In that giant heated space you'll find Canoecopia, one of the world's biggest and best canoe and kayak shows. It's always one of our favorite shows of the year. No in-water trials, but lots of good boat vibes. Look for our striking (and very cool) booth that made its debut in 2013.


Also look for our hot new Teardrop Camper, making its return Canoecopia. The buzz surrounding this is huge, so you'll want to see the shiny, varnished prototype in person. It may not be a boat, but it's still a cool kit for a light craft.

CLC Teardrop Camper

Lots of reasons to stop by our Canoecopia booth this year:

    • We'll have 20-odd kayaks, canoes, and smallcraft on display.
    • There'll be great show deals on kits.  
    • We'll have heaps of discounted accessories, boatbuilding gear, and supplies in the booth.
    • John Harris and several other members of the CLC team will be there to talk boats, and we'll likely have a building project in the booth, too.
