Description from website:

"Midwest Outdoor Experience (formerly GearFest) has grown beyond just gear and exploded into a multi-day event, featuring outdoor activities, exhibitor village, competitions, music, craft beer garden & food, camping, exciting demos and more!

This is a free event featuring lots of dog-friendly fun. There are events including and Air Dogs Show, a Pooch Island Dog Park, souvenir photos with your dog, an off-road 5k with your dog (I'll be signing up when registration opens), canoeing with your dog, and backpacking with your dog.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
