Practice your social distancing with one of the great events coming to Claremore in August!
Event coordinators and venues have been busy cleaning, sanitizing, and planning to keep the public safe as events return to Claremore. “It is important to all of us at Visit Claremore to do whatever we can to help keep the public safe,” said Tanya Andrews, Director of Claremore Expo and Visit Claremore. “Like everyone, we are anxious to resume to “normal”, however, we know that “normal” is different. We are fortunate to work with a great group of event promoters throughout the community who have the same goal-keep promoters, employees, volunteers, and public safe while enjoying one or more of the various upcoming events Claremore has to offer.”
August 1 brings the 2 Hip Chicks Roadshow to the Claremore Expo Center. Ladies, this is the perfect time to come and shop in 30,000 square feet of indoor, air-conditioned space. From 9am to 4pm, shop for the repurposed, chippy, rusty, boutiques, kid’s boutiques, farmhouse, décor, and so much more.
