Farm Expo opens Friday

Woodward, Okla. — This weekend’s 26th annual K101 Expo Farm Expo will offer more exhibitors than ever.

“We had to add an extra building because demand for exhibitor booths is crazy,” show director Shawn Miller said, explaining that the far eastern fair building will be incorporated into the show as well as the main exhibit building and the arts and crafts building.

Altogether, he said with the addition of 20-plus booths in the extra building, this year’s Expo Farm Expo will have “200 plus exhibitors inside and outside.”

Miller said, “while it is a farm and ranch show, it is also our annual trade show, so there will be something for everyone.”

In addition to “plenty of agricultural vendors like John Deere and Arnett New Holland,” he said there will also be “plenty of home improvement vendors,” including a marble and granite countertop company.

There is also “quite a bit of retail,” Miller said, noting that this includes a wide variety of vendors from the weight loss company Duvita to a western apparel company Trails West.

And that’s just the main exhibit hall. The arts and crafts building will include a caricature artist form Edmond, a leatherworker from Nebraska, and a jeweler from New Mexico among others.

There will also be games and fun for the kiddos including a “popular” bungee jump ride and a new laser shot game, Miller said, as well as a number of food vendors.

Miller noted that as always, the purpose of the Expo Farm Expo is “for Northwest Oklahoma, (as) we showcase not only local businesses but help increase awareness of Woodward in the tri-state area and across the country.”

For a list of vendors and for a map of the main exhibit hall and arts and crafts building see pages 1B, 2B, and 3B.

The expo will be held from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday; and from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is free.

“People need to come out and enjoy themselves and make a weekend of it,” Miller said.
