2019 Southern Illinois Boat and Fishing Show

2019 Southern Illinois Boat and Fishing Show – January 25th, 2019

Hi readers, it’s Rachel!

Happy New Year and hope you all are staying warm!  It’s that time of year again; the 2019 Southern Illinois Boat and Fishing Show 2019 is upon us!  This blog entry will mostly be a recycled version of the one I published last year with a few minor changes and updates.  Be sure to read last year’s blog that explains the show a little bit more in depth (just scroll to the bottom of the page).


Dates for this year’s Show:

Friday, February 1st from 3pm-8pm

Saturday, February 2nd from 9am-6pm

Sunday, February 3rd from 10am-3pm


This is the show’s 12th year at The Pavilion in Marion and we expect another great turn out!  As always, admission is FREE and ALL proceeds go to local charities!  This year, we will be splitting the proceeds between Gum Drops, NFP and the Veteran’s Honor Flight.  Our extensive list of vendors grows and changes each year and we are excited to welcome both new and veteran vendors.



We will be doing door prizes again on Friday evening so everyone who attends the show will have a chance to win!  Black Diamond Aviation will be doing helicopter rides; of course, weather permitting.  There will also be daily seminars and unique speakers for show-goers to enjoy as well.  Bring the whole family to this annual, fun, free event.  There is something for everyone!

Please check out the Southern Illinois Boat and Fishing Show Facebook Page to find more updates and details.  Lastly, if you have any questions about the show, or if you would like to vend at this show in the future, please call our office at (618) 997-3690 or send an email at info@visitsi.com.  Thanks for reading and we’ll see you at the show!
