Do you love water sports? Or are you a newbie hoping to learn the ropes?

Come get your feet wet at the brand new Driftless Sports Convergence held May 19th at the Onalaska Omni Center in Onalaska, Wisconsin. Here are five things you should know before you go.

It’s not just for water enthusiasts
This is truly event for all outdoor enthusiasts. Top experts and retailers will be present to help outfit you for other “silent sports” like camping, hiking, archery and biking, too.

You’ll be entertained
Make a day of this event by dining at the available food trucks (which will feature specialty “camping” meals) and listening to the live music. The Driftless Sports Convergence isn’t just for shopping and learning, it’s for enjoying and celebrating the culture of the Driftless Region.

There will be celebrities
No, there won’t be any movie stars. But if you follow fishing, paddling and archery closely, you’ll recognize some of these sports’ famous faces who are set to attend.

Try before you buy
Many vendors at the event will have equipment for you to demo before you make any investment. Get their expert opinions and a firsthand chance to try out their gear.

With the help of generous sponsors, attendees will get free admission to 50,000 square feet of Driftless Sports fun. Food and gear is available for purchase, but hanging out with you friends and family is free of charge.
