Lake Lanier will have its first lake-wide fall boat show the weekend of October 14-16, bringing together boat dealers, vendors, entertainment, festive food and a chance to preview new 2023 boats from manufacturers across the country.

It will be held at Margaritaville at Lanier Islands.

“We’re very excited to be presenting this lake-wide fall show and to be working with Margaritaville and Lanier Islands,” said Tabor Reins, president of the Marine Trade Association of Metro Atlanta. “With boats on show in the water and on land at the Grand Hall Parking Lot, we’ll be bringing both 2022 and 2023 model year boats to display for the boating community.”

A number of dealers have already committed to participating as of press time, including Atlanta Marine, Marine Max, Watersports Central, Advantage Boat Center, Skiers Marine, Grass Shack, Boating Atlanta and Gainesville Marina.

The show has been in the works for several months and details were finalized in late July. The group will also present a show next spring on the weekend of March 3-5 at Margaritaville. The Marine Trade Association of Metropolitan Atlanta is sponsoring that event as well.

Admission for the fall show will be $12 per person and includes gate admission and parking.

“It makes sense for us to host this show in Northeast Georgia and to combine an in-the-water and on-land venue,” Reins said. “We expect close to 200 boats to be on display.”
