Post Iowa Travel and RV Show

Anyone know the website for this event?

I've seen the show advertised on tv but I didn't catch when and where it's at.

Thanks.

You can find it at the Iowa Events Center web-site, but here is a direct link to that part:

Not much there, here is the text:

Whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned RVer, the Iowa RV & Travel Show is the best place to get you ready for the camping season. Shop and compare a grand selection of pop ups, travel trailers, conversion vans, park models and Class A, B and C motorhomes—all under one roof. There will definitely be something for every budget.


Explore exhibits featuring accessories, campgrounds and RV resorts, maintenance and service plans, insurance and financing, plus much more.

Joey Green, best-selling author and guru of wacky uses for household products, will show you how to put everyday products to use in your RV in new and useful ways. The author of more than forty books, he has appeared on The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, Today, The View, and he has been profiled in The New York Times, USA Today, and People. Be prepared to laugh - Joey gave Conan O'Brien an oatmeal shower and got Barbara Walters to put a diaper on her head - you never know what he'll be up to next!

Thanks for the info(s).

Does anyone recall an event (the last time I went to it, it was at Vet's Auditorium, I believe) that was more for hunting/fishing/camping. It had tons of Canada fishing resort and outfitter vendors.

Do they have that still?

There seem to be a bunch of them. Just google "fishing shows in Des Moines, IA" or sports shows or travel shows or canada shows (you get the idea).

That show has become several different shows that are somewhat similar.

The one that I think is most like the old fishing and outfitter show is the All Canada Show. It was in February.

We enjoy the show.

There was another RV and Boat show held already at the Fairgrounds in March.
There was a fishing swap meet there in February (which I think was the one 50201 was talking about): "at Vet's Auditorium, I believe) that was more for hunting/fishing/camping. It had tons of Canada fishing resort and outfitter vendors.".
