    The National Houseboat Expo show.

    Since one of the largest houseboating capitals of the world is in Kentucky, it's only appropriate that the world's largest house boat show would be held there.

    The National Houseboat Expo is one of the older shows, and has been running since @ 1999, and is run by Harris Publishing, the Houseboat Magazine division. The Louisville Exposition Center is an ideal location since it's capable of handling very large boats.

    This year there is a "On Water Show" at State Dock, which is being held on June 6-7-8, 2014.
