2023 Sportsmen’s Shows

It’s hard to believe 2023 is around the corner. After 2022’s revitalized show season on the curtails of Covid-19, the list of ongoing sportsmen’s shows, fishing and boating expos has returned to stasis. Very few, if any, shows have been cancelled this year.

2023 will bring new and improved technology, gear and tackle to the fishing scene. Finding and attending nearby shows that pique your interest can be overwhelming, but they’re a fantastic way to stay in-the-know during the winter months. To make things easier, we’ve compiled a running list of some of the biggest shows locally and regionally to help you plan ahead, whether you’re in Maine or Virginia. We’ll be updating the list as more show dates and venues are released.
