Stop dreaming and start boating! This show has everything from entry level to luxury boats, plus a full range of services and accessories. From February 7 to 10, it's time to think about the water instead of winter. Come and see hundreds of exhibitors at Halifax Exhibition Centre with everything you need to get ready for the boating season ahead.

Maybe you’d like to be zipping along atop the waves with the kids towed behind in a tube. Or perhaps you want to entertain guests with a leisurely sail along the shorelines, or a relaxing sunset paddle with your fishing rod. However you spend your time on the water, you'll find what you need at the Halifax International Boat Show.


Admission information will be available shortly. Please check back!


This year’s edition will have a range of exciting features. Stay tuned for all the offerings, sure to appeal to all members of the family!
