Essentially, these potential clients are home improvement shopping for concepts that reflect their dream of creating a unique home that meets their space and comfort needs, as well as their desire to save energy and have a lower impact on the environment. Each year, the Claremore Home and Garden Show is claimed to be one of the best events in Northeastern Oklahoma. It is for businesses of all types to showcase their products and services and meet 1:1 with show-goers who are genuinely interested in what they have to offer.
This year’s two-day event will feature a variety of vendors who want to help those wanting full-service, as well as helping amateur and veteran do-it-yourselfers with home improvement projects of all sizes, including financing, new buildings, materials, plants, flowers and more, all in one place.
“The show is a partnership between the Claremore Expo/Visit Claremore and the Rogers County Builders Association,” said Tanya Andrews, Director of Claremore Expo & Tourism Development.
“We want to offer attendees a full scope of providers - from outside home repair needs, full kitchen and bathroom remodels, decks, some home lending options, and vendors who offer home décor,” said Kendel Stocker, Special Events Manager.
Although exhibitors from across the state will be in attendance, Andrews noted there will be a “tremendous amount of support” from those in the Claremore and Rogers County area, many of whom are exclusive to the Claremore show. “We have many exhibitors who aren’t at the Tulsa shows because they might not feel them to be very beneficial to them, so you’ll see things at the Claremore show that you won’t see at other shows around the state,” she said. “Some of our vendors will only do the Claremore show because they like to see the return in their home town, in their region.”
“There is no admission charge to enjoy the show. This will be our fifth year not to charge admission,” Andrews said, “and it has made quite a difference in attendance. It is all made possible by our partners and sponsors; we have great community support, and this is a great way to pay it forward to the consumer.”
So, for a weekend of home products, lawn and garden equipment, seeds, plants, flowers, gifts, arts and crafts, visit the Claremore Home & Garden Show, where you’ll learn more about home projects, remodeling projects, interior design, exterior home care and more.
The show will be held on Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27, at the Claremore Expo Center, 400 Veterans Parkway in Claremore. Event hours are 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Exhibitor/Vendor applications, special features, show schedules, and a complete list of vendors can be found at www.claremorehomeandgardenshow.com.
Presenting sponsor for this year’s show is Vickrey Heat & Air. TNG Power Equipment and Webb Outdoor Power Equipment are our major sponsors; Solid Rock Realtors is our DIY sponsor; BancFirst is this year’s promotions sponsor; and vendor hospitality sponsors are Pixley Lumber, Midtown Rentals and Sales, and AMC Mortgage.
This year, due to COVID-19, the committee has implemented several changes. First, the show is now a 2-day show; March 26 and 27. “We have maxed the number of vendors to 75 to allow more space between vendors, and help keep everyone socially distanced. Although the show is early in the spring, weather shouldn’t be an issue as the vendors and sales will all be held inside the Expo Hall, with some large items out front of the Expo Center”, according to Andrews.
