Folks grab brochures and discuss travel destinations during the All Canada Show at the Pheasant Run Resort.

ST. CHARLES – The 30th annual All-Canada Show will take place at the Pheasant Run Mega Center next week, featuring Canada’s fishing and hunting destinations. The event includes semiars, maps and travel guides.

The event runs Jan. 10 to 13 at Pheasant Run, 4051 E. Main St., St. Charles. Those interested in traveling to Canada will find a variety of destinations including drive-in resorts, camps, and lodges, remote fly-in outposts, canoe outfitters, five-star fly-in lodges and hunting outfitters.

“The key to a successful Canadian trip is proper planning,” Jennifer Young, the show’s general manager, said in a news release. “That’s the whole premise of the All-Canada Show – we have everything show guests need to plan their trip. The opportunity for show guests to talk, face-to-face, with the owners/operators of these lodges greatly improves their chances of a successful adventure. We work with reputable, well-established camp and lodge owner/operators.”

Show staff and featured speaker Norm “the Great” McCreight will head to the show’s seminar stage to educate consumers. The presentations offer insight into selecting for the perfect destination, choosing the right lodge plan, crossing the border, plus tips on saving money and wilderness safety.

“Canada is a great destination for these and many more reasons: the nature is amazing, seeing wildlife in their natural habitat is an awesome experience (including bears, moose, eagles, fox, deer, arctic turns, and so much more), it is safe to travel in Canada, it is easy to cross the border (bring your passport), and lastly it is close and accessible,” Young said. “Go this year, cross it off of your bucket list, don’t wait another year.”

“If you like Canada, there’s plenty to keep you occupied at the show,” Young said. “Although the primary purpose of the show is to select the perfect destination for your adventure, we also offer a variety of information, attractions and entertainment to aid in the process and create a real Canadian atmosphere.”
