history

 

 

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 Darke County’s second oldest festival.

 

For 33 years, the festival was held behind Garst Museum.  As the museum planned to expand and the festival continued to grow, it was decided that the festival was better suited to move to the Darke County Fairgrounds.  In 1997, the festival moved to allow more room for entertainment, activities and parking.  However, due to the cost of rent for the fairgrounds, the festival was forced to charge admission to cover the rental.

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.
