The Memorial Coliseum in Ft. Wayne, Indiana is home to one of the Midwest’s most successful and longest running sport, vacation and outdoor shows. For over 50 years, camping, boating, hiking, fishing, hunting, fitness, biking, travel and outdoor sport enthusiast have converged on Ft. Wayne’s Memorial Coliseum. This fifty-year-old annual event has always remained fresh and new, as it has changed family ownership. Six years ago, the show really took a giant step forward adding log cabins, timber frame homes, lake resorts and energy efficient living.

Along with our 100+ exhibitors and vendors displaying nearly everything outdoors – bikes, kayaks, canoes, RV’s, boat, ATVs, motorcycles, mobile homes, log homes, lake cabins, timber frames, hiking, hunting fishing trips, gear and apparel, Canadian outfitters and more – there is also hands on action and adventure. The 108,000 sq. foot state of the art Memorial Coliseum is full of live fishing, an air rifle range, an archery range, kids activities, unique food, seminars, a 25,000 gallon lagoon, kayak rides, log cabins, timber frames and super entertaining live lumber jack shows. It is truly a weekend packed with fun for the entire family!
