Sarasota’s annual boat show has the locals excited, as they look forward to it every year and will be returning April 21-23, 2023. The boat show displays an incredible lineup at the Marina Jacks boat dock both on land and in the water. Showcasing a selection of sport fishing, powerboats, motor yachts, and more.

Bring the whole family, as this event also provides activities for children. On Saturday and Sunday, a local television host will be present to teach kids how to fish in his Hook the Future fishing clinic, with complimentary rods and reels for kids. 

Don’t worry if boats may not be your niche, this event is not only tailored to boat fanatics. Shop tents will be there full of electronics, jewelry, art, clothing, food, drinks, music, and more.

While you are visiting, explore the gorgeous downtown Sarasota. Visit some hotel rooftops, restaurants, activities, and attractions. If visiting on Saturday, don’t miss the farmers market downtown on Main St. and Lemon Ave. We hope to see you there!
