Now in its 14th year, the Pacific Coast Sportfishing Tackle, Boat, Travel, and Outdoors Show (PCS) returns to the Orange County Fairgrounds March 7 – 10. The West Coast’s Premier Outdoors Show (PCS) has expanded, taking over the entire fairgrounds, adding freshwater fishing, sportboats, landings and all forms of outdoors to its already expansive saltwater offerings.

The show features a huge selection of the latest boats to purchase, all sizes of engines as well as electronics to satisfy boaters needs. We have all the big-named dealers, manufacturers, and equipment here to answer any questions and get people into what they want and need. In addition, there are boats to fit any budget from inflatables up to multimillion dollar center consoles for attendees to view, walk aboard and check things out.

During Covid the annual show grew from one building in 2020, 3 halls in 2022 and now it is 5 acres, 217,000 sq. ft and 7 halls as well as the main mall. It covers the entire fairgrounds filled with the best fishing tackle, top fishing boats, finest fishing destinations and family outdoors fun. This year they are expanding farther into the parking lot to accommodate more boats for everyone to enjoy.

In addition, the show has also added many new food vendors and includes live entertainment, interactive activities, and the best seminars on the coast. It is a full day destination. There are plenty of free activities for the kids, both young and old, to try out and enjoy, including the trout pond to try their hand at catch and release.
