Sturgeon Stampede

The 27th annual Sturgeon Stampede will kick off Friday Feb 12 at noon with snowkiting and sailing until dark off the shores of Roosevelt Park. Friday afternoon the Winnebago Association of Kiteboarders (WAK) will be sponsoring LIVE music from 5pm to 10pm just off the shores of Sunset Grill and Bar, featuring the Josh Schneider Band, and returning entertainment from D’Willy and the Souvenirs. WAK will also be providing refreshments and food, and the lake’s LARGEST bonfire to keep the crowd warm and lively. Organizers will also host the annual Sturgeon Queen Contest and crown the winner prior to the “on-ice” Fireworks show to be held at 9:30 pm.

On Saturday the Stampede will host the Midwest’s best Kiteboarders and Ice Sailors in a competition of Racing, Freestyle, and “Big Air” jumping. Kiting events are scheduled from 11am to 5pm wind permitting. Complimentary kites will be given away to the first arriving spectators to join in on the kite flying. Racing will be held approx. 1/2 mile off shore of Roosevelt Park. Shelters, food and refreshments will be available. Awards will be presented at the Fishing Has No Boundaries Tent Saturday evening.

Sunday will bring more kite and sailing activities with many of the area riders enjoying and sharing the ‘free ride’ experience of winter winds as they play, soar, and sail on the frozen lake. Sunday is also the official alternate competition day if there is no wind on Saturday. Shelters, food and refreshments will be available.
