With the slight warm-up in the weather this week, it’s the perfect time to start dreaming about spring and attend the Minneapolis Boat Show at the Minneapolis Convention Center January 19-22.
As always, the event is full of education and family-friendly events including:
- NEW! Cruising the Water with Wings Financial Credit Union, an immersive experience featuring the Minnesota Wine Experience with wine tastings from three top Minnesota cold-climate wineries and Cruisin’ Cuisine with boat cooking demonstrations from three of the Twin Cities’ most popular chefs (1/20 and 1/21).
- Free daily seminars on a variety of topics that will help you stay safe and make the most of your time on the water, including the popular Fred’s Shed Interactive Learning Center for DIYers looking to learn how to repair and maintain their boats.
- Antique Boat & Classic Boat Display, a fan favorite returning this year with an impressive display of antique and classic boats from old wooden beauties to quirky crafts from days gone by.
- Boating Skills Virtual Trainer, which allows you to take the helm of a virtual boat and sharpen your driving, docking and other important skills.
