The boat show is the premier boating event in Tennessee, and a great excuse to think ahead to summer fun during these dreary winter months. There will be great deals on all kinds of boats from the region’s top dealers, including luxury yachts, fishing boats and pontoons, luxury yachts and wake boats, plus fishing accessories and experts on hand to offer tips and expertise.
Nashville Music City Center Jan 19-22, 2017 hours vary daily: Thursday 2-9pm, Friday 12-9pm, Sat 10am-9pm, Sun 11am-5pm

· Kids 10 and under will enjoy free catch-and-release fishing in the popular trout pond, and attendees of all ages can relax and enjoy virtual fishing on the Progressive® Flomotion, a staged luxury yacht, and participate in fun trivia and other games while on board for prizes!
· Fred’s Shed DIY and interactive workshops on maintaining and repairing a boat will be offered free throughout the show.
· New and seasoned boaters will enjoy trying their hand at the Power Squadron Boating Simulator to test their skills and learn something new.
· Grab a bite to eat and have a drink at FishLipz Party Cove! The famous Fishlipz Grill, originally located in Pate’s Ford Marina, is hitting the road and setting up shop at the show. Patrons can enjoy a cocktail or beer at the bar and chow down on a fish dinner.
· Come for the boats, stay for the live music on Friday and Saturday from 4–8 p.m.! It’s the perfect spot to start an afternoon or night downtown.

Experts will be on hand throughout the show teaching attendees everything they need to know about getting their feet wet in the sport of wakeboarding! Attendees can also dive into the world of paddlesports at the on-site Paddlesports 101 workshop at the show.
