Mercury Racing Announced Plans for First Event in June 2024


The first Mercury Racing Owners Poker Run is slated to take place in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in June of 2024. The company announced tentative plans for its first event, organized with support of the Oshkosh Convention & Visitors Bureau and event planner Shannon Radtke.

“We could not be more excited to work with Mercury Racing, the City of Oshkosh and Shannon Radtke,” says Jodi Jensema, Discover Oshkosh sales and services manager. “Mercury Racing has a long history in Oshkosh, and we love that they want to share this with the Oshkosh community. Lake Winnebago and the Fox River will be a great place to showcase these amazing boats, and we can’t wait to be a part of this first time event.”

The family-friendly four-day event is tentatively scheduled for June 20-23, and plans include a multi-stop powerboat poker run on the Lake Winnebago basin, a live sandbar concert, powerboat street parade, street dance and Mercury Racing factory tours.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Mercury Racing owners and the performance boat community to Oshkosh for this event,” adds Stuart Halley, Mercury Racing general manager. “The 50-year history of Mercury Racing started right in Oshkosh on the banks of the Fox River, so this seems like the perfect place for the Wide Open crowd to gather for an event that will offer something for the entire family.”

Additional information on the event will be released as plans solidify. To learn more about Mercury Racing, visit
