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 move from their past location at the Darke
County Fairgrounds north, to York Woods on US RT 127.
The move will provide all the same attractions and events
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
The core mission of The Annie Oakley Festival is honoring Darke Counties most famous Daughter.
