In advertisements for the Wild West Show, Annie was called “Little Sure Shot”—the nickname Chief Sitting Bull, her costar, had given her. She would hit the edge of a playing card from 90 feet, and shoot it five or six more times before it hit the ground.
The Annie Oakley Festival Committee is excited to announce that this year’s festival will be held at York Woods on US RT 127 and no entrance or parking fee.
The Annie Oakley Festival began in the summer
of 1963 as the brainchild of local individuals who sought to further
the memory and image of their native daughter, “Annie Oakley –
Little Miss Sure Shot.”
The festival committee is a group of volunteer citizens and business
owners who dedicate themselves, along with countless hours of work,
to make this annual festival
For 33 years, the festival was held behind
In 2014 the festival moved to York Woods, home of the Darke County Steam Threshers. The tree lined walkways add to a very relaxed atmosphere and was very well received. In 2015 the committee voted to make the festival a free event. No admission to enter and no parking fee.
The core mission of The Annie Oakley Festival is honoring Darke Counties most famous Daughter.
