2021 Chicago, Milwaukee Musky Expos Canceled

The Muskie Expo has announced that its 2021 Chicago and Milwaukee shows have been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Our goal has always been to deliver an outstanding event for musky vendors and enthusiasts. With that in mind, imagine a show with only 50 percent of the vendors, speakers and attendees. We couldn’t either. Unfortunately, that is the current reality which has forced us to cancel both shows,” said Muskie Expo President Mike Veserat.

The 2022 events have already been scheduled. The Chicago Muskie Expo is January 7-9, 2022, at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles, Illinois. The Milwaukee Muskie Expo is February 11-13, 2022, at the Washington County Fair Park in West Bend, Wisconsin.

Veserat thanked the supporters of the shows, adding, “We are going to have a full year to make the 2022 shows a pair of events that no one will want to miss. Mark your calendars.”
