Hundreds of river and canoeing enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest, along with local citizens and regional tourists, are expected to turn out from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday May 26th in Spooner, Wisconsin, for the ninth annual Canoe & Wooden Boat Show at the Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Museum (WCHM). The event is part of Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Day at the museum, and is one of hundreds of events taking place across the country in 2018 that will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.
The canoe museum is also celebrating its 10th year since incorporating as a non-profit in 2008. Both anniversaries will be celebrated during Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Day. The public is invited to this free event that will feature an annual canoe and wooden boat show on the street in front of the museum, plus tours and open house in the museum exhibit hall, ongoing activities in the canoe workshop, and live music, food and beverage available in the beer garden.
