You know that spring is in the offing when you hear that it’s time for the 2024 Tulsa Boat, Sport & Travel Show.

The boating season is just a few months away so get a jumpstart on the season and take the family to Sagnet Center at Expo Square for the yearly exposition presented by Toyota.

When my lovely spouse learned I would be attending the event, she insisted on turning into a date. Truth of the matter is, she’s tagging along to keep me out of trouble, which is probably a good idea. Having dropped enough hints, I can’t believe a new bass boat is in the six-figures range now.

Boats of all shapes and sizes will be on display. Bigger and better each year, this seven-day event will showcase hundreds of new products, including the latest cabin cruisers, pontoon boats, ski boats, fishing boats, the newest gear, tackle and more.

Also on site, you can tour the Class A motorhomes, fifth wheels, travel trailers and much more. Whether you like fishing, sailing, cruising, skiing, wakeboarding, or traveling, the show will have something for everyone.

Representatives from marine, RV and outdoor manufacturers as well as area dealerships will be at the show to answer questions and provide information on the latest watercraft, camping accessories and angling products.

Come and see the new model Toyota Tundra and Toyota Sequoia.

Additional features, entertainment and giveaways are planned at the show. Check out their website at TulsaBoatShow.com for details.

The dates and times are as follows:

• Tuesday – Thursday: noon – 8 p.m.

• Friday: noon – 9 p.m.

• Saturday: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.

• Sunday: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Specials:

• Veteran’s Day, Wednesday — noon to 5 p.m., $6 admission

• Senior’s Day ( age 60+), Thursday — noon to 5 p.m., $6 admission

• Teacher Appreciation Day, Friday — noon to 5 p.m., $6 admission

The location is the same. It is at the Sagenet Center at Expo Square on 4145 East 21st Street in Tulsa.

General admission is $12 Monday through Sunday. Children 12 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.

“Two dollars off” discount coupons are available at many area sporting and boating vendors in eastern Oklahoma

Save time and skip the box office lines, buy advance tickets online at the website. They are also offering this year online a two-day ticket ( to be used Monday-Friday) for $20.

Jennifer Maricle, spokeswoman for the show, reminded me that this Tulsa Show is family-owned and is the largest in our geographical area. It also is the fifth largest boat show in the nation.

“ We have rented every square foot of space available this year,” said Maricle.

I go each year to look at new products and run into old friends who also have an interest in the outdoors.
