Escape The Cold At The Minneapolis Boat Show

Published: Monday, January 13, 2020

The 2020 Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show® will drop anchor at the Minneapolis Convention Center January 23-26, 2020, providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for guests to shop and see the latest and greatest boats and marine accessories and technology, swapping the winter blues for thoughts of summer fun.

Minnesota is number one in boat ownership per capita, and the Minneapolis show is the longest running boat show in the region. Attendees can peruse more than 700 boats, including pontoons, fishing boats, tow boats and cruisers, and enjoy annual favorites like the Antique & Classic Boat Display and Boating Skills Virtual Trainer, where you can set out on a simulated "boat trip" to practice boating skills. Enjoy live music from 4-8pm Thursday through Saturday at the new lifestyle feature, which will transport you to warmer days on the water, complete with cocktails, food and fun. Kids 5-12 can pick up a show map to “Discover-A-Boat” while navigating the show floor. Visit all stations and discover various types of recreational boats; return with the completed map for a prize!

You can also take advantage of the many educational programs offered through onsite seminars and educational exhibits. Most are free and it’s a fun, entertaining way to learn and hone your skills.
