Ohio’s oldest and largest annual boat show has just become much bigger with the addition of the exciting new Fishing Expo for 2020. Now, surrounded by more than 400 new power and sailboats from basic paddleboards to million-dollar motor yachts, and all ready to welcome you aboard, this year’s show will be your summertime experience in the middle of the Ohio winter with a myriad of interactive exhibits and entertainment for the whole family.
Cost of admission to the Progressive Cleveland Boat show does not include parking. The Cleveland Boat Show benefits in no way from any parking fee collected by the I-X Center, nor does it have any control over the lot.
