Welcome to the show

Get away to the Kentucky Sport, Boat and Recreation Show! We are central Kentucky’s largest and longest running outdoor expo. With just over 100,000 square feet of exhibitor space, we fill Rupp Arena and Heritage Hall with everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors, lakes, and waterways this summer. We are host to the biggest names in the rv, boat, travel and recreation industry. In addition to great products and exclusive deals, come out and enjoy great family entertainment. Generations have enjoyed the show for over 30 years. Many children have caught their first fish, fed their first farm animal, and ridden their first pony with us.  If adventure sports are not on your bucket list, we have live music performances and cocktails for a truly Kentucky experience. So shake off the cabin fever and join us at the Kentucky Sport, Boat and Recreation Show — everything summer under one roof!
