59th Tulsa Boat Show is Feb. 2-8

POPULAR EVENT: Taking up some 465,000 square feet of space at the River Spirit Expo at Expo Square, the Tulsa Boat, Sport and Travel Show is one of eastern Oklahoma’s biggest and most popular shows of its kind.

There’s good reason for fans of the outdoor life in eastern Oklahoma to have already circled Feb. 2-8 on their calendars.

Whether they’re boaters, RV enthusiasts or want to be, this is the time of the year that the Tulsa Boat Sport & Travel Show comes to town.

Taking up some 465,000 square feet of space at the River Spirit Expo at Expo Square, the event is one of the eastern Oklahoma’s biggest and most popular of its kind.

The event has been getting its well-deserved attention in the boating world for nearly 60 years (this year will be the 59th annual event).

Just about every kind of boat, recreational vehicle and outdoor living equipment available, plus a wide selection of gear and displays makes the show a must-see, must-attend event.

It will also be a great place to make deals in a setting that almost guarantees value for the consumer.

That’s because dealers and manufacturers of that outdoor gear, many of whom have been exhibiting at the show for years-even decades-know they have a unique opportunity before them.

And people from all over the region have been looking forward to this event for months.

Visitors can walk into the large heated facility and explore the boats or RVs of their liking and check out what some of the biggest dealers and manufacturers have to offer. It’s quite literally a one-stop shopping experience.

The most obvious attraction of the show is the models that manufacturers are bringing out for 2015.

Because it’s early in the year, this may in fact be one of the first opportunities enthusiasts have to see what’s new on the market.

“This is always a great week for our exhibitors,” says Jennifer Maricle, who manages the show on behalf of family run Magic Empire Recreation. “The show sets the tone for the entire season.”

Some of those who will attend the show have been waiting for the show to do their boat and RV shopping.

That even applies to shopping for vacation plans.

“We’ll have lots of travel opportunities, even hunting trips to places as far away as Africa, for people to check out,” says Maricle.

The show, she adds, has become a multi-generational event for many of the visitors who will be at the event in early February.

“We have grandparents and grandchildren who have attended the show for years and years,” says Maricle.

Admission for this year’s show is $10 from Tuesday through Sunday. A Preview Night (Monday, Feb. 2) is planned and admission for that is $15.
