After reviewing the current situation and potential alternatives, the Waconia Lions Club has decided to cancel the 38th Annual Wild Game Dinner scheduled for February 1st. The main reasons for this decision involve the following:

  • Due to ongoing construction, the location (i.e. – the Waconia Event Center) where the event has historically taken place will not be available.
  • A suitable replacement venue large enough to support the current version of Wild Game Dinner operations could not be identified.
  • Though two significantly smaller venues were ultimately identified late in the fourth quarter of 2019, the planning time required to reconfigure Wild Game Dinner operations in order to make those venues feasible simply proved to be inadequate.

While the Wild Game Dinner has been cancelled for this year, rest assured that the Waconia Lions Club is currently moving forward with the planning necessary to make next year successful.  Be sure to check our website or Facebook page for future notifications and details!  We hope to see you there!
