TULSA (March 20, 2017) – The year was 1917 and the automobile was still early in its infancy as a part of daily American life. There were an estimated 5 million registered automobiles then, as compared to more than 255 million 100 years later. And it was the first year of the Tulsa International Auto Show, which will be celebrating a century of automobiles next month.
The 100th anniversary of the Tulsa International Auto Show will be held April 7-9 at River Spirit Expo at Expo Square in Tulsa.
“We expect this to be a special year for the Tulsa Auto Show,” Bill Knight, president of Knight Automotive Group, said. “Tulsa’s commitment to the growth of the auto industry has been reflected positively for the past century, and we are excited to have an opportunity to celebrate 100 years of the automobile industry in the Tulsa area.”
The Tulsa Auto Show is one of the largest consumer shows in Oklahoma and will feature a variety of entertaining activities for adults and kids of all ages. The 100th anniversary event will include a re-creation of the event from a century ago with one hundred-year-old and vintage cars; the opportunity to test drive cars and trucks from Toyota and Chevrolet; the Hall of Fame NASCAR exhibit; classic cars; an 18-hole mini golf course; a “Caffeine and Gasoline” event and many new vehicles that are not yet in dealership showrooms.
“The Tulsa Auto Show is going to be an exciting event for everyone who walks in the doors,” Tom Bloomfield, general manager with Don Thornton Automotive Group, said. “Whether you enjoy classic cars, new cars or fast cars, there will be something here for everyone, and the centennial celebration should be one of the best shows we have ever had.”
