About the Houston Boat Show

The Houston Boat Show is the country’s largest indoor boat show, and the event attracts huge crowds every year. It’s one of the most popular things to do in Houston when it’s here.

Now entering its 65th year, the Houston Boat Show is bigger than ever before, featuring over 1,500 boats and RVs from more than 300 exhibitors.

There are also seminars, fishing demos, campers, and more. There’s also fun for the little ones — kids will enjoy the family-friendly events featuring Fish-O-Rama where kids can catch live fish, plus Build-a-Boat, Paint-a-Boat, and Build-an-Engine; plus there’s an inflatable slide, bungee jump, and bounce house — all at the Kids Zone.

The fun goes on for more than a week, and it all takes place inside the massive 700,000 sq. ft. NRG Center.
