For more than four decades, the Ottawa Boat Show has been an integral part of the Ottawa Region’s rich heritage. The 2018 event marks the 43rd edition of this classic exposition for summer fun.

For most of its history, the show was hosted by various buildings at Landsdowne Park in downtown Ottawa, with the last show occurring there in 2011 as the City of Ottawa began a major redevelopment of the site. The show eventually moved to the EY Centre near the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, and displays the latest products for boaters and those who enjoy the beautiful summer days in and around the Ottawa Region.

The Best in Boating

Featuring the top brands in the business, the Ottawa Boat Show brings together the best selection of boats and equipment with the convenience of finding everything under one roof at the EY Centre. The annual event is the largest boat show in the Ottawa Region, featuring an impressive array of boats, along with the products and services that go with them.

The leading event for recreational boating in Ottawa, this exciting show has something for boating enthusiasts of all types. With an unrivalled selection ranging from powerboats, fishing boats and cruisers, to pontoons, canoes and kayaks, it’s a showcase of the best in the region for boating accessories, cottage living, docks and so much more! Mark your calendar for the 2018 Ottawa Boat Show to be part of the excitement!

Let’s Go Fishing!
Known as “Ontario's Adventure Playground” and the “Whitewater Capital of Canada,” the Ottawa Valley is home to more than 900 lakes and four major river systems, making it a paradise for recreational fishing fanatics. In the midst of the breathtaking landscapes and scenery, the Valley includes 158,000 acres of water filled with more than 20 species of fish.
These uncrowded waters form a healthy ecosystem in which you’ll find bass, walleye, northern pike and muskellunge. This popular area is located within a day's drive of major centres in Ontario, Quebec and the northeastern United States.
Let’s Go Fishing will be an exciting new show feature highlighting exhibitors with products and services for the recreational fishing enthusiast, along with educational seminars, appearances by industry celebrities and interactive activities.
