The dates are set September 9, 10 & 11. The weekend after Labor Day.

Summary is below.
Additional details to follow.
Please use this thread to express your interest/attendance, table(s) req'd and PM me any further questions.

The previous Fests held here have been successes on all fronts, excellent turn out and participation of Savage Collector Forum members, enough Savage rifles, pistols, shotguns & memorabilia to boggle the mind and I didn’t break the bank putting it together.
We’ve had great regional turn outs including Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan & Wisconsin, plus Kansas, Nebraska, Ohio, Carolina, California, Wyoming, Hawaii, Tennessee and I may have missed some.

I’ll book the same venue and hotel as before.
I’ll provide enough tables for all and security for Friday and Saturday nights.
Setup will be Friday morning early followed by kickoff of Savage Fest.
Saturday will be Savage Fest all day including some raffle prizes which we donate and a team photo.
Sunday morning early will be tear down.
I’ll organize meals for all days and as before many have brought food, snacks, soda, etc. and pitched in where they could.
A few volunteers for setting up, tearing down, meal prep and other things will be worked out by then.
Friday & Saturday evenings we'll shoot the breeze.

All Savage Collector Forum members, spouse, kids are welcome. Forum members can bring guests as before as well.
I require a PM to assemble a guest list and get a head count. No walk-ins will be allowed.

This a not for profit event with no admission fee. I’ve relied on donations from attendees to help cover costs and have not been disappointed.
PM me any questions or areas where you may volunteer or help.
If interested and/or think you can make it, feel free to chime in and we’ll make it happen.

As before, I'll reserve table space for any day trippers that bring goods for display also.

What is “Savage Fest”? A show and tell, a swap meet, an enthusiast shoot?

YEAAAAAA!!!!

Thanks Rick! grin

Rory and I will be there with all the Savage stuff that we can poke in his vehicle. Probably 5 to 7 tables total. Will probable have some of John Wrights memorabilia that is being sold for the family so you might want to bring some extra cash.

I can do badges if you want. Should we put a pistol on it this time?


Savage...never say "never".

Hope to be able to attend, nothing on the calendar at present. Question, from reading about and viewing past photos of earlier gatherings, will this one be basically a social gathering and such or will there be some range shooting?

Well then put Sept. 9 & 10 on your calendar for Savage Fest! smile There, now you're booked. Easy.

The focus for Savage Fest has been an educational and informative show of all things Savage Arms.
In addition to many models and variations of 99 rifles there'll be .22's, pistols, shotguns, military, catalogs, ammo, books, optics, memorabilia and more to view and discuss.
More important than the display pieces themselves will be the attendees combined wealth of knowledge on the above named topics. Savage experts will be present.

The reality of Savage Fest is that these 2 days fly by.
It is particularly busy for the folks that travel and bring items to setup and display on tables and don't have time for much else.
We eat well with with plenty snacks, wild game, gun show BBQ's, Fish fry Friday and pot luck dinner on Saturday.

One change for Savage Fest 2022 will be the venue.
The previous school gym rental had some policy changes as well as fee increases making it not feasible for our purpose.
The good news is the Sportsman's Club I belong to is only 1 mile away and has all the facilities we'll need.
Plus, unlike the school gym rental, buying and selling of items is possible.


If further Savage Fest questions please PM Southern_WI_Savage.

Ok, couple of months to go!
I've gotten many responses from Forum Members who plan to attend and/or plan to attend and show some collectibles.
Still plenty of time to PM me if you are interested or have any questions at all. The Opening Post contains most info.

I have some hotel rooms reserved at the Cedarberry Inn/Sauk City as with previous Fests. Either pm me and we'll transfer a room or you can go out on your own with other options. If problem, let me know.
Also, this Savage Fest will be at my local Sportsman's Club that does not have "sales restrictions" as the Rec Center did for past Fests so you can display/sell/walk around if you choose. I plan on some ammo, memorabilia and things that go boom. I will PM you the location/address vs. posting here, it is the internet. smile
Between Rick99 & myself we will have some of cmhjohn's memorabilia, books and more available.
Our author friend Calhoun plans to attend so it's a good opportunity to meet the man, talk some and get a book.
I invited Garnett Stancil who wrote the Savage 101 pistol book. He's excited, he is also 85 and in Alabama and is working on details. Fingers crossed. If he can make it, his book will be available too.
Bailey Brower is in his 90's and doubtful to attend, but I will have plenty of his Savage Pistol books as well as books by James Carr and Daniel Stern, The Savage Automatic Pistol & 10 Shots Quick.
Obviously David Royal is invited, however his new Engraving Book probably will not be available at Savage Fest time so it is iffy if he will attend. We will have some of his books available.

Previous Savage Fests have had a wide variety of Savage Arms collectibles and firearms. 1895's, 1899's, 99's, .22's/many models, shotguns/many models, Savage Pistols, I will have a display of all 1907/15/17 models including deluxe pistols and a proto-type. Memorabilia of all sorts, catalogs, pins, fobs and much more.

Skidrow, bring some of those unpacked boxes you have and we'll raffle them off as mystery Savage items. smile

If you are thinking about attending Savage Fest, do it! none of us are getting any younger....

Standard at the Club are 6'.
I'll need to rent some tables too so can be either 6' or 8'. Let me know what you prefer.
We have a large space, but not a gym like last Fests here. 6' give more flexibility in arranging tables etc.
We'll get things set up to maximize the displays etc. It'll turn out nice.

Some of you have previously invited other Savage Collectors who may not frequent this forum.
Be sure to mention Savage Fest 2022 to them again.
Send them here or send them to me and we'll work it out.

Hey Rick-Hope you are doing well. I was really looking forward to attending the 'Fest' as it wasn't that far of a drive for me and hoped to visit long unseen distant relatives not far from the fest in Helenville that I told you about some time back. Like gatherings of this type and looked forward to meeting those in attendance, but a family gathering that required my being present is taking place the weekend of. Thanks to you and all who are working to make the 'Fest' happen. Roger

Ok we're about a month out for Savage Fest 2022!

Most arrangements have been made for another successful event.
I'll figure out lunch on Friday, Fish Fry Friday night, lunch Saturday with snacks and drink in between.
Typically we have a potluck dinner on Saturday night. I am flexible here and ideas and contributions are welcome.
Many attendees bring something to pitch in for a snack or meal. Bruce's smoked salmon and bear brats come to mind. smile
We have a gas grill & stove at the club house. Counter space for crock pots.
Let me know if you have something in this area and I will try to plan it all out.

I've gotten a good number of replies of those who will participate with items to show and also folks who plan to attend.
If you are still thinking about it be sure to let me know so I can add you and/or guests to the list.

If you need a hotel room let me know.
If you have any other questions at all or if you plan to bring food/drink of any kind, let me know.

Mid-day on Saturday we'll have a team photo and door prize drawing. Anyone present can grab a rifle for the team photo and be sure to bring a door prize to donate if you'd like to participate.

Thanks for everyone's help!

Yes and possibly. grin

I'll be busy inside with Fest.
I hadn't planned on shooting, but a guy could.
Shooter would need to be my guest, sign in, abide by range rules, ect. We can cover that later.
Touch base with me then.

Rick,
I have a friend that collects, lots of Winchesters, but he also as about 20 Savage Levers. He's not a member of 24CH. He expressed interest to me.

Rick, I’m going to have to back out. My hunting buddy just booked us a SC pig hunt and I had to put up $500 deposit. That and the 1902 Engraved rifle and the 250A Saddle Gun, 22” barrel in 250 I wanted to show every one, I’m back in my normal state of brokedness.


I'm not greedy, I just want one of each.

I think I've contacted everyone who expressed interest and sent the location and my contact info.
If I missed anyone, please PM me and I'll straighten it out.
Or if you have decided to stop by, same thing, PM me to get on the list.

(The 2022 location has changed from 2018. If you go to the Rec. Center you will be out of luck)

We're about a week out. Everything is set and ready to go.

Friday - 7-9am or whenever you roll into town. I'll have tables etc. in place so all you need to do is setup your respective tables. Savage Fest until ~4-5pm followed by fish fry.
Saturday - 7-9am or whenever you roll into town, setup for those displaying on Saturday. Savage Fest until ~4-5pm followed by cookout.
I will have lunch & snacks covered and you are welcome to potluck whatever you can bring.

All Savage Collector forum members, families & guests are welcome.
Be sure to PM me if you are coming or have any questions at all.

The weather looks to be sunny & clear, 60's in morning and warming to 80 in the afternoon.

Looking forward to seeing you all then!

Well Rick, I found and opened a box yesterday and it was a box of Savage ammo boxes. I used to collect them. They're all just empty boxes but my thought is I should bring them along for door prizes. Not Savage Arms boxes but Rem,Win etc. Some of them look pretty much alike but if you look close they're all a little different. All 300 Savage because that's what I collected. Should I bring them or are they too small to bother with?
