The Owensboro Artifact Show returns to the Owensboro Convention Center this weekend. From Friday through Sunday, artifacts from all over the world will be displayed, with some items for sale or trade.
Vendors will be showcasing coins, knives, fossils, jewelry and other collectibles as well.
There will be more than 400 tables of displays as well as vendors who can authenticate items and give free estimates on artifacts.
Brandon Vanderver, the event organizer, said safety measures will be in place and aisles have been widened to 12.5 feet to allow 6 feet of travel space in each direction down the isles.
Masks will be required.
There will be Native American Indian artifacts from all over the world on display and for sale.
“Everything from arrowheads and axes to pottery and pipes,” Vanderver said. “A few dealers also have other antique items as well so there is a no telling what you may find.”
Vanderver said there will be plenty of knowledgeable collectors and amateur archaeologists to help people learn and understand about the items.
Admission is free. The show runs noon – 6 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday, and 8 a.m. – noon Sunday.
