“We had a great turnout and generated lots of interest in our new & existing boat lines. Looking forward to coming back next year.” – Braden Panasiuk of Gibbons Motor Toys

For our first-time at the show, the experience was perfect. The people working there were nice to chat with and always ready to help. We decided before the end of the show that we would be back next year. – Eric Chaumont of Impact Outdoor Supplies

The Edmonton Boat & Sportsmen’s show is one of our favorite shows to attend. It’s an excellent opportunity to see our customers face to face and for them to have a hands-on experience with our product. We are pleased to say that the show is extremely organized and well put together. – Jamal of APA Archery

“We had an incredible 4 days at the 2023 Edmonton Boat & Sportsmen’s Show. Lots of laughs, talking fishing and hunting with old and new friends. (Even better than laughs are the bookings!) THANK YOU to Team EBSS for making the show so easy to be a part of. Count us in for 2024!” – Kim Reeve of Adventure Destination International

This was one of the best shows that I’ve ever experienced in Canada. It was such a thrill watching hunters and anglers booking hunting & fishing trips with local guides and trips of a lifetime with hunting and fishing lodges. Within itself, the show was an amazing adventure. And if you weren’t there, you truly missed out on one of the first outdoor adventures of the 2023 season! – Wes David of Host & Producer of Fishing the Wild West TV

This show would not have been the same without our incredible sponsors: Canadian Tire, Canadream, WildTV, AHEIA, Non-Typical Nation, NASP, Fishing the Wild West TV, Edmonton Fish & Game Association, Out Fly Fishing, YYC Nature and Education Centres, and SCI!

The show will return in 2024. For complete details, visit the show’s website at and connect with the show on Facebook, Instagram.
