Parkland Outdoor Show and Expo sees record breaking attendance

Around 4,500 people attend weekend event

YORKTON – The 10th Annual Parkland Outdoor Show and Expo took place over the weekend throughout the Gallagher Centre.

This was the first event held by the organization since 2019 due to the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A multitude of vendors and guest speakers from all over the world attended the event to showcase their products and services.

Darren Wandy, President of the POSE, said their paid admissions reached 2382 on Saturday and 1093 on Sunday, for a total of 3975 paid attendees over the weekend, which doesn't include the 500 children admitted on Saturday.

"A lot of the vendors that come to our show are small business," said Wandy, adding, "they were pretty happy to be there."

"All the money we make goes back into our cause, which is youth related outdoor sports," said Wandy.

Wandy took the time to thank sponsors as well.

"Our major sponsor, Yorkton Dodge– Doug Arnett has been with us for ten years," adding, "we'd like to extend a thank you to him."

The 2023 event will take place in April of next year.
