Chippewa Valley Boat and RV Show Attracts Thousands in First Year

News

A new event in the Chippewa Valley wrapped up its third and final day this Sunday.

The Boat and RV Expo was held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Chippewa Valley Expo Center in Eau Claire.

The expo featured seven local dealer groups and more than 30 brands of outdoor recreation equipment including boats, motorcycles, ATV’s and RV’s. It also included fishing seminars.

Organizers for the event said it was a great way for the community to get connected with local businesses. 

“We’ve really got a lot of positive feedback from people that came with their families and friends to spend the day with us,” said Mike Emberson with Zacho Sports Center.

Organizers said there’s a need for events like Sunday’s expo in the Chippewa Valley, and they plan to continue the Boat and RV Expo for years to come. Organizers also said they might expand next year’s expo by one day.

There was no cost to attend, and organizers estimated around 3,000 people attended.
