Claremore is a busy city offering events throughout the year. A few March events sure to attract visitors and residents include a St. Patrick’s Day lunch, a spring break with Will Rogers and the Claremore Kennel Club Dog Show.

The 10th Annual St. Patrick’s Bangers & Mash Lunch on March 15 is a crowd pleaser, according to Tanya Andrews, director of Visit Claremore. “Claremore’s St. Pat’s Bangers & Mash kicks off a great weekend of traditions starting with lunch in historic downtown. Shops are decorated in their finest greens, and Claremore’s two Irish pubs—Main Street Tavern and J. Farley’s—will both carry on the celebrations with traditional Irish specials of food and libations.” Lunch, live entertainment and vendors will take over the Claremore Daily Progress parking lot at 315 W. Will Rogers Blvd. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Timothy O’Brian’s Celtic Cheer will perform the lunch-time entertainment at the Bangers & Mash Stage.

From March 18-22 Spring Break with Will takes place at two locations–the Will Rogers Memorial Museum in Claremore and at Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch in Oologah from 1-3 p.m. each day. All children 17 and under will be admitted free during spring break. Registration is not required. Events at the museum include movie poster making, 19th-century hands-on activities, behind-the-scenes tour of the museum, plane displays, and a paper airplane contest. Events at the Birthplace Ranch include Baseball at the Birthplace, and an opportunity to learn about the game of polo.

“Spring Break with Will is a fantastic camp-like setting for kids, giving them something to do during their break while learning about a great man, an American icon,” said Andrews. “This is a full week of activities that both the children and parents will love, and it’s all free.”

The Claremore Kennel Club Dog Show at the Claremore Expo Center runs from March 26 until April 1, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. More than 1,000 entries hail from 25 or more states as well as from Canada and Great Britain. The popular event features breed competition for Best in Show. North America Diving Dogs perform dock diving each day, and vendors specialize in all things dogs.

“The Claremore Kennel Club Dog Show is one of our favorite events; it’s like a mini Westminster,” said Andrews. “The entries and their owners come from all over and bring their A-game. These dogs are serious when it comes to show time, but during their breaks they love to greet the public.”
