In light of the direction announced on March 12th, 2020, from Alberta Health Services and subsequently from the Edmonton Expo Centre, effective immediately the 2020 Edmonton Boat and Sportsmen’s Show, which was set to take place at the Edmonton Expo Centre from March 12th to 15th, has been cancelled. This is in compliance with the province’s direction to help reduce possible risk regarding the spread of Covid -19. In our 43 year history, this is the first time we have had to suspend operations and this underscores the importance of the measures being undertaken by Alberta Health Services.

Attendees who have already purchased tickets will be notified by e-mail.

EBSS staff will contact exhibitors with updates when more information is available.

We ask for your patience while we work through this unprecedented situation.

Sensory Safari

Sensory Safari offers a unique opportunity to children and adults.  It is very special for the visually impaired who focus learning through touch and hearing.  Children and adults are escorted by knowledgeable “safari guides” through a variety of touchable displays of animal, fish and bird mounts, skins, skulls and horns. The guides describe the animals and their habitats and behaviors as participants touch and sometimes even hug the displays. Sensory Safaris can be held year-around and be located virtually anywhere, giving children and adults a hands-on wildlife education.


Supported by the Royal Alberta Museum, the Sensory Safari utilizes donated and borrowed animal mounts, skins, skulls and horns.
