Bowfest is back, with 3-4 thousand attendees enjoying a variety of family-friendly activities.

After checking in, attendees can go through ‘vendor world’, full of anything needed for archery.

“We’ve heard about Bowfest in the past, and it was a great event, and being a new business, we thought it’d be a good chance for us to get out and get in front of the archers,” said Dialed Archery COO Scott Bakken. “The archer community is just a great community, so I just wanted to come check it out and you know, meet some new folks and introduce some new products.”

Of course, the main focus of Bowfest is archery.

“It is the largest archery event in the U.S. that shoots three targets,” said Mont du Lac Manager Mike O’Hara. You have six courses, so you go out and you hike the trails and the targets are presented like you’d see them kind of if you were hunting.”
