This Year's Tulsa Farm Show Has New Attractions While Keeping Old FavoritesFri, 03 Dec 2021 15:17:32 CST
Every year, the Tulsa Farm Show wows Oklahomans as the state’s largest indoor farm show. This year, the show boasts more than 400,000 square feet of exhibits, including 380 companies, all featuring a full line of displays. The show comes just in time for end-of-year shopping.
Scott Guttormson, show manager for Midwest Shows Inc., said this year’s show has the same beloved elements with some new ones added.
“A mechanical bull will be at the show this year,” Guttormson said. “Also, we have about 12 people now participating in the cattle equipment demos.”
The premier sponsor of the TFS is the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. Each year, OKFB offers safety training for attendees of the TFS, Guttormson said.
“They have some new (training) they are going to launch this year,” Guttormson said.
An annual crowd favorite of the TFS is horse trainer Craig Cameron. It is no surprise that horsemanship clinics draw large crowds in cattle country, Guttormson said.
“Each year, people (watch Craig) and learn something new each time,” Guttormson said.
Technically, this is the second go-'round for the TFS in 2021. The 2020 show was postponed because of the COVID-19 complications last December. Guttormson said even when show attendance is low, exhibitors are understanding and luckily for them, the folks who do show up are ready to shop.
“That is a positive part of it,” Guttormson said. “The people who are our core exhibitors are in it for the long haul and we are all going to get through (COVID) together.”
Doors will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Dec. 9 - 10, 2021 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021. As always, admission and parking are free at the TFS.
