Open House and Camp-In at Bushwhacker

  • Bushwhacker 5728 North Knoxville Avenue Peoria, IL, 61614 United States (map)

10AM Saturday April 14 - 10AM Sunday April 15: Camp in with us and learn a ton!

Bushwhacker is opening their doors (and their patio) for a special Open House Event! Starting Saturday at 10AM, experience behind the scenes access to our store. Ever wonder what it takes to tune a bike, what equipment we use to set edges on your skis, or where we store the thousands of parts and pieces to fix all your gear? The doors to our service shop will be open all day with a few key times set aside for Q&A sessions with our mechanics.

As the day goes on take part in “how to” clinics with topics including hammock camping, stuffing a pack, trail running 101, best places to float a boat, and many more. Keep your eye on our facebook page and event page on our website as details will be posted closer to the event.

This event is really two events in one. Saturday night we are having a party on the patio. There will be a fire available for smores roasting, and warm, dry space inside if needed. If your looking for some extra fun, stick around for the “CAMP-IN.” Starting at 6:30, claim your spot either indoors or outside to set up camp for the night. Space is limited inside so reservations are strongly encouraged. Overflow space will be available outside. Tickets Here.

This is a Family Friendly event. Adult beverages are permitted, but not provided. There are many dinner options in Junction City, or bring your bike and some lights to join us on a night ride to grab dinner. Camp-In doors are closed at 1030 and Lights out is 11pm. All sites need to be cleaned up by 10AM Sunday at end of the event.

There will be a few prizes and giveaways throughout the night. A special award will be given for the best campsite.
