CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Scott Tarbell, owner/promoter of New Frontier Shows, announces the company’s Cheyenne Firearms & Western Collectibles Show & Auction is moving to a spacious new 64,000 sq ft location, Laramie County’s Event Center at Archer. The 12th edition of the popular collector-focused event will be held August 27-29. The on-site live auction, which will also be accessible to online bidders through LiveAuctioneers, starts at 2pm MT on Saturday, August 28.
“Dealers are going to love the new venue, which has been built for convenience and even has its own exit off the freeway,” Tarbell said. “It’s designed with parking that backs up to a large entry, making it very easy for dealers to load in and load out. Guests will appreciate the ample parking, dedicated concession area, and free Wi-Fi. It’s located 5 miles east of Cheyenne, so it’s only minutes away from hotels and the Downtown Cheyenne Historic District.”
Tarbell says approximately 3,000 people attended last year’s Cheyenne show and auction, and that his most recent Cheyenne gun show – which did not incorporate an auction – attracted 4,300 guests. “That shows you how quickly the firearms and Western collectibles hobby is growing. To us, it made sense to move to a brand-new venue that can accommodate future growth, which we know is coming. Already, we have 15 more tables booked for the August show than we had last year.”
The auction portion of the August 27-29 event will feature 394 lots of pre-1900 Western artifacts, antique and vintage firearms (with a special emphasis on Winchesters and Colts), Western art and advertising; and cowboy and Native American artifacts and relics. Highlights include the Mike Olson estate collection of rare rifles and cowboy gear; and Native American artifacts from the collection of celebrated photographer Carl Moon (1878-1948), who lived with Hopi, Apache and Navajo tribes while respectfully documenting their cultures and practices.
