Spring Boat, Cottage & Outdoor Show
June 10 - 12, 2016
Fri: Noon - 8:00pm / Sat: 10:00am - 7:00pm / Sun: 10:00am - 6:00pm
Welcome to the Spring Boat, Cottage & Outdoor Show at the beautiful Port of Orillia and waterfront parks, Lake Couchiching, Orillia, Ontario, Canada!
New and pre-owned boats of all sizes make up this show, from inflatables to offshore performance to fishing boats to cruisers! Started in the early 1990's for the large pre-owned boat market, this is an established trade show for the boating industry and private sector. This is one of the few shows offering private owners an opportunity to sell their boat. Cost, location, time of year and ease of in-water testing all contribute to the success of the Spring Boat, Cottage & Outdoor Show!
The show also features a variety of marine, cottage and outdoor products, land vendors and marine safety demonstrations.
