Covid Updates

Masks are NOT required for persons attending or exhibiting at the 42nd Annual Ohio RV and Boat Show being held in the Bricker Multipurpose Building and the Celeste Center at the Ohio Expo Center. We have wide open isles at this show, and offer opportunities to view RVs in small family groups if desired.

However, to help keep the spread of viruses down, the sponsors of the show (Central Ohio Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association and the Central Ohio Marine Dealers Association) encourage persons attending the event to wear masks.

We want all of our guests to be comfortable, and if you choose to wear a mask, that is acceptable and appreciated.


The Show

Two Weekends of Excitement!
Jan. 6-15, 2023

The Ohio RV and Boat Show is the largest, and longest running show of its kind! It is now in its 43rd year and recently has had an attendance in excess of 24,000 people! The show will be open January 6th, 7th and 8th, for its first weekend. Then we reset our displays and adjust inventory for the final weekend! The then show opens Wednesday the 11th, and then every day there after up until Sunday the 15th.


The Ohio RV and Boat Show has grown so much adventure, by adding ATVs, Motorcycles and Golf Cars to the show, that they require two of the largest buildings at the State Fairgrounds location of the Ohio Expo Center. In addition to the Boat and RV dealers, you will find a slew of vendors selling related products like camping gear, equipment and even vacation rentals and camp sites.

The show is proud to have contributed more than $200,000 to local charities through ticket sales. In the past years, the Ohio RV and Boat Show has made contributions to the Ohio Wildlife Center in many ways! One way was through the ticket sales. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket purchased was donated to the Ohio Wildlife center.

The 2023 event will feature over 21 dealers from all over Central Ohio with hundreds of Campers and Boats! You'll find everything from small and personal, to enormous and extravagant! Schedule to be announced soon!

The Ohio RV and Boat Show has established a strong partnership with Park National Bank as well. In recent years Park National Bank has assisted in the marketing and promotion of the event by reaching out to their own customer base as well as some conventional media and marketing efforts.

The Ohio RV and Boat Show

What is The Ohio RV and Boat Show?

The Ohio RV & Boat Show is sponsored by the fourteen member Central Ohio Recreational Dealers Association (CORVDA) and the eight member Central Ohio Marine Dealers Association (COMDA)


The Ohio RV and Boat Show is a coordinated event that involves many Central Ohio Boat, RV, ATV and Motorcycle dealers. All of these select dealers join together to provide the best values and opportunities for consumers in each of their own industries.

It is held on the first two weekends of January. All of the dealers all agree to bring in the best products for the next year, and offer discounts on any remaining items from the previous season.
