WCC Event Details

For its 26th edition, World Carp Classic remains at its birthplace the magical record-breaking Lac de Madine in France. The event will be taking place from the 23rd to the 28h September 2024

Each year demand for places far exceeds those available and this year will be no exception, especially following the huge success of our 25th anniversary celebration edition.
