As the air fills with the promise of spring and the warmth of the sun encourages us to get outdoors, our anticipation for adventure grows.

After the great success of last year’s event, the Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex, the North Island Outdoor Adventure Show returns for its second year. With over 2,600 visitors attending last year’s show and all vendor spaces sold out, the North Island Outdoor Adventure Show has become a must-attend event in Campbell River.

“We are thrilled to once again host this two-day event that promises to be a celebration of all things outdoor adventure. As we prepare for another memorable event, we look forward to even more excitement and involvement from both attendees and vendors,” said Event Organizer, Joel Wheeldon, Program Coordinator, Arenas & Other Programs for Strathcona Gardens. “The public will be able to browse a variety of products and learn more about exciting experiences for enthusiasts of every age and interest. This year, we’ve expanded the number of vendors by adding 10 exhibitor booths resulting in over 50 Vancouver Island outdoor adventure companies and organizations!”

Admission is free. Visit the North Island Outdoor Adventure Show in Campbell River on April 20 & 21 at the Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex. Show hours are Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
