January is typically a slow time period for concerts in our neck of the woods.  After all, who wants to come to North Dakota in the middle of January?  Well, apparently at least a couple of acts do.  More on that in a moment.

The 2nd annual Bismarck Rec and Leisure Show is coming up on Friday, January 13th through Sunday, January 15th, 2023 at the Bismarck Events Center.  This is your chance to visit with local RV, boat, spa, UTV, ATV, scooter, dock dealers, and more all under one roof at this year's event.

This show is focused on outdoor toys ranging from pontoons, fishing boats, 5th wheels, toy haulers, travel trailers, spas, hot tubs, trailers, guide services, ATVs, UTVs, and more.  If you enjoy outdoor fun, this will be your kind of show.  Your chance to visit with dealers and see the latest and greatest new toys, and what's new for summer.

In addition to this year's Bismarck Rec and Leisure Show, there will be not one but two concerts.

Friday night, January 13th will feature country hitmaker, Chris Janson.
