Happy September, Claremore! School is in session, temperatures are cooling and college football is kicking off this weekend, which means we have officially started the fall season.
I look forward to the changing leaves, outdoor activities and brilliant colors that flood our community this time of year. From the Shepherd’s Cross Pumpkin Festival to the Rogers County Fair, Claremore offers many activities to help you celebrate. Additionally, with more than 1,200 acres of fishing, hiking, and mountain biking, the cooler temperatures provide an excellent opportunity to explore some of Claremore’s outdoor recreation offerings.
The beginning of fall can also be identified by the start of a new horse racing season at Will Rogers Downs, which kicks off on September 12.
These are just a few examples that lead Trips to Discover to name Claremore as the Top Town for Fall Fun in Oklahoma! We are extremely proud to be listed alongside cities such as Branson, Estes Park, Taos and Seattle as a top fall tourism destination.
The team at Visit Claremore works tirelessly to promote our community and attract visitors from around the globe. Recognition such as this is a prime indication that we are on the right track and our tourism efforts are being noticed on a national scale. A special congratulations to Tanya Andrews and her team!
Whether it is enjoying a festival in the Lilac District, or one of the many livestock or horse shows taking place at the Claremore Expo Center, there are many opportunities to enjoy this time of year. I encourage you to discover the many activities our community has to offer. You can view a complete list of fall events on visitclaremore.org or by visiting the City’s new website, claremore.com.
Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend!
All my best,
