Join us in-person or virtually at this special 75th-anniversary fun-filled celebration of anglers and angling with fun activities and exciting deals for all!

St. Croix Rod invites all anglers to join one another in celebration of fishing - as well as St. Croix's 75th anniversary - at its 2023 Customer Appreciation Day, scheduled for Saturday, June 17 at the St. Croix Factory in Park Falls, Wisconsin.

"Customer Appreciation Day is always a special event that everyone in the St. Croix family looks forward to," says St. Croix Vice President of Marketing, Jesse Simpkins. "But especially this year, since 2023 marks our 75th anniversary. We're excited about welcoming anglers from all over the country to share the special brand of fun and camaraderie this event provides, whether they're joining us in person or virtually."

St. Croix Customer Appreciation Day draws anglers into the St. Croix family and experience in a way that no other rod manufacturer offers on such a personal level. The unique event will include fun opportunities to learn about the rod-building process, informative fishing seminars from St. Croix pros, casting classes, a free brat lunch, special 75th anniversary prize drawings, and special deals on St. Croix rods and apparel and other items.
