To compliment the on-water action, Huntsville will host the MLF Outdoor Sports Expo, featuring hundreds of exhibitors and activities. This Expo will take place in the Van Braun center and include a huge live-streamed watch party of the tournament.

We are excited to see how the REDCREST tournament + MLF Outdoor Sports Expo will bring revenue to the Rocket City.

“Sitting in the middle of one of the great bass fishing areas in the United States, we look forward to seeing REDCREST continue to grow when it comes to the Rocket City and the Expo takes over the Von Braun Center as we create a one-of-a-kind experience for everyone interested in the sport.”
