The Onshore-Offshore Boat Show will be held next June at the newly renovated Bradenton Area Convention Center (formerly the Manatee Civic Center) in Florida.

Organizers said the June 21-23 show will feature new boats, boating accessories, fishing and archery gear and expert speakers appearing on two stages to discuss boating, fishing and outdoor adventures.

The show also will present one of the raceboats from the 29th annual Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix, and attendees will be able to meet and interact with race teams.

Half of all ticket revenue from June 23 will go to Suncoast Charities for Children, the beneficiary of the Grand Prix, which is one of Sarasota’s biggest annual events. The Grand Prix will run from June 29 to July 7.

Admission to the boat show is $5 for adults. Children 12 and under are free, and parking is free. Adult tickets will be 2-for-1 on June 21, courtesy of the Bradenton Herald.

Show hours are 1 to 8 p.m. on June 21; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on June 22; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 23.
