WHERE: Jefferson County Fairgrounds,
Brookville PA 15825
(Jefferson County Pennsylvania Indian Artifact Shows, Antique Firearms Shows.)
DESCRIPTION: Indoor show featuring over 100 tables of Antique Firearms through 1898 and Indian Artifacts.
The firearms building emphasizes 19th century western Pennsylvania gunsmiths and includes accouterments and modern rifle recreations of both flint and percussion rifles with many for sale.
The archaeological building will present some of the finest privately held collections of prehistoric and historic Native American artifacts from this region.
Items for display and sale will include flint tools and points, ground stone items, pipes, beadwork and pottery. Experts in both buildings will be available throughout the day to answer questions about their interests and provide free evaluation and identification of rifles or artifacts brought in by the public.
Enjoy other events through the day, such as a chance to win a muzzleloader rifle hand crafted by Ron Luckenbill, children’s activities, primitive games, flint-knapping demonstrations and the popular atlatl and tomahawk throwing event and competition. The atlatl is an ancient hunting weapon that preceded the bow and arrow. It’s a spear-throwing device – such as a thong or shaft – that is used to propel a spear with much more force that can be generated by arm-throwing alone. The World Atlatl Association has sanctioned this competition for serious competitors, but everyone can to try their hand.
Event benefits the Jefferson County Historical Society and the North Fork Chapter 29 of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology.
Antiques and collectibles vendors and dealers wanted.
Vendor fee and information: Vendor tables are $25 each and exhibitor tables are free.
