Organizers are calling it Windsor’s “largest event of the year” and it begins this Friday.

The North American Sport & Hobby Expo will take over all four ice rinks at the WFCU Centre between Friday and Sunday, the building will be split into 14 theme zones, and 175 exhibitors will be there to entertain.

“We’ve built a crazy exciting event for the entire family,” says event producer Andrew Adam. “Anyone who loves having fun should be here. It’s as simple as that.”

Organizers say the Sport & Hobby Expo is the ultimate weekend for all sport and hobby enthusiasts. There will be national and local exhibitors, contests and giveaways, crafts, woodworking, music, arts, a comic book area, a model and remote control vehicle area, appearances by celebrities and professional athletes, huge sales, new products, an interactive skills testing area and more.

“The Hockey Hall of Fame and appearances by sports legends top off the list of highlights, but truly the focus is on the over 175 incredible vendors who are going all out to make this weekend spectacular,” says Adam. “There will be interactive games, tournaments and competitions, demonstrations, hot deals and special offers, and over $20,000 in giveaways.”

Adam says the focus on hobbies only adds to the excitement.

“I am personally most excited to experience the Geek Zone, Combat Zone and Outdoor Zone, which are only 3 of 14 zones.”

The Sport & Hobby Expo runs on Friday May 30th from 4pm – 8pm, Saturday May 31st from 10am – 8pm and Sunday June 1st from 10am – 6pm at the WFCU Centre. Single day tickets are $13/adult in advance or $15/adult at the door.
