About the Show
5 days of outdoor fun!
Whether you’re an avid outdoorsman or are just looking for a way to escape winter for the day, this is YOUR show! The annual 5-day event turns America’s Center into a one-stop marketplace for outdoor fun— the best place to see and buy everything you need for your outdoor adventures! See nearly one thousand boats—from fishing to cruising to family fun there are boats for every activity, lifestyle and budget. Browse specialty booths showcasing the latest in boating, fishing and hunting gear. Visit outfitters and resorts to plan your next trip or book a vacation, too. There’s really no better place to shop, compare and save!
Special attractions make a day at the show fun for the whole family! Get tips from the pros at the Boating and Outdoor Classroom. Attend DIY seminars at Fred's Shed Interactive Learning Center, and learn from a real marine mechanic and other experts on how to best care for your boat. Also try the DEMA Dive Tank. Bring your bathing suit and DEMA Scuba experts will supply the rest.
Compete in turkey calling or owl hooting contests. See native fish in action at the Texas Bass Tank. And youngens will want to visit Kids’ Cove where they can enjoy the free Becky Thatcher Trout Pond and Captain Tim and Gypsy Rose Landship.
There really is something for everyone!
